3rd Grade History Unit Design: Native Americans of North America
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
5.0 stars

This unit on American Indians: By studying the regions of the United States and the cultures that live in each region, students are able to compare/contrast within regions and across regions how tribes used their environments, and their cultural and other contributions to American life.

Note that the emphasis here is on broader groups of tribes for each region with some instruction on specific tribes representing each region. In no way is this case study approach to learning about one tribe meant to be generalized to all tribes of that region. We understand that each tribe was and continues to be unique in its culture, practices, lifeways, and traditions.

This source was created to give an overview of the Australian history and culture to overseas students and professionals who plan to work or study in Australia. The source introduces the main historical and cultural aspects of the Aboriginal Australian cultures and traditions.The misinterpretation of the Australian culture and history and the lack of awareness on the historical and cultural role of Aboriginal societies is a common practice amongst international students that arrive in Australia, who often have a determination to settle down and become part of the Australian society. Therefore, the primary purpose of this lesson is to raise awareness, combat stereotypes, and promote respect for the First people of Australia.

Abanicos: lengua y cultura is designed for a first semester of elementary Spanish but it can be used to review vocabulary and grammar at any level. It offers textbook pages in color and printable worbook pages that align with the textbook. The vocabulary and grammar derive from the topics in the textbook. These topics cover physical and political geography of the Spanish-speaking world, traditions, and popular culture. Reading, listening, speaking, and writing are goals in each section. The book is complemented by videos, games and grammar practice, quizlet sets, and other resources found on internet. This project will continue with the second semester book in the near future. I welcome ideas and collaboration as well as suggestions for improving. I hope this book will be useful to many Spanish language instructors and learners.
