Section II 

SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR THE CURRICULUM

 

The essays in this seciton reflect the integration of some of the thoughts outlined by teachers in the previous section into specific curriculum units applicable to rural schools in Alaska. While the applicability of some of the curriculum units is not restricted to rural schools, they are all designed to help students learn the skills they need to survive in the changing world in which they live. The structure of schooling and the methods of teaching reflected in these units are as important as the subject matter being presented.
