PREFACE

The City and Borough of Juneau School District expressed support of culturally relevant curriculum when it adopted instruction BP 6000, which states...

I. The Curriculum BP 6010
A. General BP 6011
B. The curriculum of the various grade levels will include instruction in Tlingit culture as an integral part of the K-12 social studies curriculum.
(Adopted September 27, 1971)

The Title IV-A Juneau Indian Studies Program has provided the students and teachers of the district with development of curriculum and classroom instruction.

In May of 1982 the adoption of Board Resolution 12-81 provided the district with an "Indian Education Curriculum, Tlingit Culture, Scope and Sequence for grades K-12."

Since that time, Indian Studies has worked toward refining curriculum based on the adopted Scope and Sequence. Classrooms have experienced annual instruction from the Juneau Indian Studies Program and curriculum has been constantly revised through pilot testing and teacher evaluations.

In the past year the Juneau Indian Studies Program has focused its effort in developing a Curriculum Guide for teachers. This involved the formation of a committee comprised of educators and members of the Native community. The committee was broken into two components: A CONTENT committee which focused on the appropriateness and accuracy of cultural information, and a FORMAT committee which reviewed, supported or made recommendations to the effectiveness of the way information is presented.
