Through the readings, participants will examine primary and secondary documents that inform the tribal history of the Flathead Reservation. Participants will utilize their critical analysis skills while using instructional strategies within the context of multicultural education. This course is divided into weekly “modules.” Participants will have one week, starting on Monday and ending on Sunday, to complete each consecutive module. Each weekly module includes a reading assignment, an instructional strategy and a group discussion component. The weekly assignments are due at various times during each week. The last week of the course is dedicated to final projects, depending on the desired credit type. The course books are available to purchase or through your school or local library.
