Tina Thone -- Native American Boarding Schools (year 1)
Sheboygan 7th grade teacher Tina Thone created a lesson unit focusing on Native American boarding schools for her Integrated Language Arts course. The unit will help students to understand the forced acculturation of Native Americans in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and why boarding schools were created in locations all over the United States with the purpose of "civilizing" American Indian youth. From this experience students will gain respect from differences in cultures, and learn to become active questioners and critical thinkers when analyzing primary documents.
