Aleut Story in the Classroom – Coming October 2007
A Unit Plan designed to enrich classroom study of United States history, social science and culture will soon be offered of this site. Teachers will be able to download the entire unit plan at no charge and reproduce for the classroom.
The unit plan will include individual lesson plans to be used in conjunction with the documentary film Aleut Story or as stand-alone resources. Electronic copies of primary documents will be included. Recommended activities are being created for use in secondary schools or colleges, but may be readily adapted for use in community and cultural education programs or at home.
Lesson plans will be correlated with recommended national standards for history and social studies, and designed to meet grade level expectations in those subjects. Activities are being developed using the educational objectives identified by Bloom’s Taxonomy.
A copy of Aleut Story licensed for educational use may be ordered online at http://www.visionmaker.org, a service of Native American Public Telecommunications (NAPT), which is funded, in part, by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Aleut Story may be recorded off-air and used free in the classroom for one year. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
