INTRODUCTION

The Juneau Indian Studies Elementary Guide is designed for teacher use and is primarily based on the culture and environment unique to southeast Alaska.

Each grade level, Kindergarten through fifth grade begins with an OVERVIEW of the units, including the Social Studies emphasis based on the "Indian Education Curriculum, Tlingit Culture, Scope and Sequence."

A SUMMARY of information on each unit follows, which provides the teacher with the PURPOSE of the unit (why we’re teaching what we’re teaching); and a day by day description of each lesson plan, including KNOWLEDGE and SKILLS taught or reinforced.

Next come sequential lesson plans and handouts. The handouts include some very special graphics which enhance the subject and have proven very popular and effective with students in strengthening the learning process.

Our units may best be described as experiential, since ALL students have opportunity for SUCCESS through hands-on activities that are both fun and educational.

Most importantly, the following units aide all students to more fully UNDERSTAND, RESPECT and APPRECIATE cultural differences and similarities.

Method of instruction incorporates clinical teaching techniques. Juneau Indian Studies Program staff have participated in related teacher in-service regarding clinical teaching.

Many thanks to the Elementary teachers of the City and Borough of Juneau School District for the support, enthusiasm and input which helped create this guide.
