Teacher-prepared notes show students what is important and how ideas relate, and offer a model for how students should take notes themselves (Marzano et al., 2001).
In North America Indian groups spoke more than 300 different languages and had diverse cultures. According to their environment, they made their living by hunting, fishing, farming, or herding. Their social organization ranged from small tribes, composed of several clans (related families), to large confederacies, composed of many tribes. These notes give students an overview of the major tribe, type of housing used by the tribe, their major food supply, their clothing and tools, and present-day territories they inhabited. These notes come with a completed teacher version and a fill-in-the-blanks student version. These notes work well when accompanied by classroom reading materials. Enjoy!
