My Indian Boyhood

The text used in this self-paced online Moodle course targets grades 4-8; however, teachers of all grades and content areas will build background knowledge and learn instructional strategies that will facilitate the integration of Indian Education for All. Participants will read and review the Essential Understandings of Montana Indians and the book, My Indian Boyhood by Luther Standing Bear. The primary text, considered an antidote to stereotype-laden children’s books, is a first-person account of Luther Standing Bear’s traditional childhood. The Essential Understandings Regarding Montana Indians will serve as a guide for critical analysis of My Indian Boyhood. Through readings, examinations of high-quality and authentic literature and teaching materials, participants will explore a variety of literature and professional teaching materials and develop strategies, a lesson plan and a final project for the immediate integration of IEFA into their classrooms.
