American Indian Literature (for use in grades K-8) Indian Education for All Online Book Club Course
April 2 – May 22, 2018
This course serves as an opportunity for participants to explore OPI developed instructional units based on literature sent to all Montana elementary and middle school libraries alongside additional primarily fiction texts for use in grades K-8. The course will be divided into three parts: literature for K-2, literature for 3-5, and literature for 6-8. Many resources are place-based, either focused on Montana tribes or created by Montana Indian authors. Participants will read texts, engage in discussions, complete instructional activities, and examine accurate and authentic Native American fiction and nonfiction texts. Ultimately, participants will select texts and instructional units for immediate integration of IEFA into their classrooms. This course is rigorous and requires the participant complete extensive reading and access a number of texts through their school or public library or purchase said materials from WM-PLC or booksellers.
1. Develop background knowledge of Indian Education for All (IEFA).
2. Read American Indian literature and explore the background and perspective of the authors.
3. Explore literature units developed by the Montana Office of Public Instruction, and examine ways to integrate them into their classroom setting.
4. Explore several instructional strategies to use with the anchor texts.
5. Discuss with colleagues ideas for implementing the Essential Understandings
Regarding Montana Indians and IEFA literature across grade levels and content areas.
6. Create a final project which integrates the materials and concepts covered.
