MY TEACHING STYLE

Living and teaching in the 21st century! I am always surprised when children (and adults) make comments to me that "they thought Native Americans lived in the past". As if they were not around anymore? A relative even thought my students came to school wearing leather clothing with feathers in their hair! Their perspective is a reflection of an insufficient education. There is a focus on teaching about Native American culture looking to the historical past.. My goal is to provide relevant teaching materials that teach about modern Native Americans in addition to historical lessons. I strive to create tribal specific lessons that bridge history with contemporary issues in my classroom. I focus on Native American artists, authors and leaders in all areas. I hope you find useful lessons to bring a modern perspective to your students. My store is very limited, but will continue to grow, I'm a newbie here!
