Originally featured in the 6-16-2017 Scout Report, educators and interested readers can still take advantage of this resource's offerings. Highlights include: more than a dozen lesson plan ideas and extensive bibliographies of relevant books, articles, and films.
K-12 English and social studies instructors will find a variety of resources for teaching Indigenous literature, culture, and history on this website. This online resource was created in 2015 as part of a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Institute for educators, headed by Native American Studies scholar Kathryn W. Shanley and Curriculum and Instruction scholar Phyllis Bo-yuen Ngai. During the Summer Institute, participating K-12 educators had the opportunity to hear from a number of experts in Native American studies before using their own expertise in K-12 instruction to craft a number of unit plans and other classroom resources. Visitors to this site will find these lesson plans via the Teacher Authors section on the right panel of the homepage. Each resource is accompanied by a short biography of the teacher who created it as well as their current classroom. In addition, educators can check out a list of all resources used into this institute via the Institute Materials section.
