Exploration in culturally relevant curriculum and assessments for urban American Indian students
This research-based piece provides Social Studies educators with two exemplar units combining Minnesota State Standards with traditional ways of knowing of the Anishinabe. Based on the Seven Grandfather Teachings of the Anishinabe, these units are aimed at reaching urban American Indian High School students. For a World History course, a multicultural perspective of Columbus' arrival to the Americas is provided, while a unit in United States History highlights social movements of the American Indian community, and provides students with an opportunity to become active agents of change in the local community.
