Appropriate Methods
When Teaching About Native American Peoples:
indicates link to related site
Understand the term "Native American" includes all peoples indigenous to the Western Hemisphere.
Present Native American Peoples as appropriate role models to children.
Native American students should not be singled out and asked to describe their families' traditions or their peoples' culture(s).
Avoid the assumption there are no Native American students in your class.
Use books and materials which are written and illustrated by Native American people as primary source materials: speeches, songs, poems, and writings, which show the linguistic skill of a people who have come from an oral tradition.
When teaching ABC's, avoid "I is for Indian" and "E is for Eskimo."
Avoid rhymes or songs that use Native Americans as counting devices, i.e. "One little, two little, three little..."
Research the traditions and histories, oral and written, of Native Americans before attempting to teach these.

will administer and evaluate grant activities as well as with the Department of historyto design professional development for the american history as Dialogue
CONTACT: Mary Balme, Monroe #1 BOCES, (716) 249-7026 or Ellen Santora, Warner School, (716) 275-5053 or John Walker, Monroe #1 BOCES Public Relations, (716) 383-2262 November 8, 2001 Teaching American History Gets Transformation with Grant A collaboration of local educational institutions has received a three-year, $921,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to plan and implement a professional development program for 120 urban and suburban K-12 social studies and history teachers. The program will engage teachers as learners and researchers of history to prepare them to teach their students to think more critically and to use a multi-disciplinary approach while studying historical events.
Monroe #1 BOCES in Fairport will administer and evaluate grant activities as well as take the lead role in recruiting teachers for this professional development program. BOCES is a state-supported institution that provides unique educational resources to 10 suburban school districts that enroll nearly 50,000 students. The Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development at the University of Rochester, through its Social Studies Program and its newly-created Center for Professional Development and Education Reform, will work collaboratively with the Department of History to design and provide professional development for the "American History as Dialogue" program.
Ellen Santora, assistant professor of social studies education at the Warner School, will direct this professional development program. "Many of the elementary, middle school, and high school teachers who will participate talk about and teach history, but have never experienced 'doing history,' " explained Santora. "I am thrilled by this opportunity to enhance their knowledge of history by engaging them in the work of historians. As a result, we hope it will be easier for them to actively involve students in exploring the highly contentious and dynamic nature of historical interpretation."

    • The teachers association ran an AEW ad on the city's closed-circuit TV channel. A local radio station posed "quiz" questions about the city's schools. The Local Association and school district cosponsored billboards with pro-public education messages. A Local president wrote a letter of thanks to the community. It was printed in the local newspaper as a "letter to the editor." The Local Association president was interviewed on the radio. The local daily newspaper published an editorial by the Local Association president who expressed the pride Association members took in "working hard to teach children to think and dream." Students read motivational quotes from past and present heroes on a local radio station and on the school's public address system.

    98. History, Art, Ethnic -- China Institute
    China Institute
    125 East 65th Street
    New York, NY 10021
    (212) 744 8181, ext. 147 groups Founded in 1926, China Institute is the oldest bicultural organization in America focusing on China. Its mission is to promote understanding between Americans and Chinese through educational and cultural programs. To accomplish this mission, China Institute offers a very wide variety of programs, activities, lectures, presentations, and exhibits throughout the year. A small sampling of typical activities includes:
    • Films by Chinese American directors not what your average TV-watching American might expect! Eye-opening lectures and slide shows on aspects of Chinese culture and religion An exhibition and auction of Chinese Peasant Paintings beautiful, beautiful works of art! Courses on Chinese Calligraphy and Painting (for individual students) A Course on Basic Chinese Cooking.
    There are many other interesting exhibits and things to do and learn. Chinese New Year Programs and Gallery Tours, for instance, take place October through May, emphasizing the rituals and customs associated with the most important and festive holiday of the year. Gallery Exhibitions throughout the year offer rare glimpses into Chinese art and culture, with works of art ranging from Chinese bronzes to photographs of ethnic minorities from China's western frontiers. Anyone interested can write for a 30 page booklet and calendar.For School Groups , the China Institute is a valuable resource for entertaining activities that teach kids about the people of China and their lives. Exhibition-related programs for school groups include a tour of the Institute's exhibitions. For students, In-School Courses are offered to teach students to speak, read, and write simple Chinese. Calligraphy is China's most revered art form. From its early beginning as "picture writing," it still retains a pictographic quality. Another in-school program can be custom-developed to teach students of any ages things like Beijing Opera Face Painting, Chinese Paper-Cutting, Paper Folding, and many other features of the culture.
