Expanded ‘Native People of Wisconsin’ Teacher’s Guide debuts

Native_GuideThe Wisconsin Historical Society Press announces a revised and expanded Teacher’s Guide for Dr. Patty Loew’s newly-updated young readers classic, Native People of Wisconsin (also now available). This essential guide is the tool teachers need to help students explore “Native People of Wisconsin” and the stories and traditions of Wisconsin’s twelve Native Nations.

Tailored especially for the upper elementary classroom, this new edition of the Teacher’s Guide meets and exceeds the requirements of the Wisconsin American Indian Education Act (Act 31), providing exceptional and authentic teaching materials about tribal history. Published in CD-ROM format, the revised and expanded guide is based on Dr. Loew’s research for her award-winning title for adults, Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal, and provides educators with additional materials that help make learning easier for students.

Dr. Loew has edited this guide to better direct teachers in instructing young readers on the history, culture, and traditions on Wisconsin’s Native peoples. Complete with maps, illustrations, and a detailed glossary of terms, this highly anticipated edition includes two new chapters on the Brothertown Indian Nation and urban Indians. Also includes are updates on each tribe’s current history and new profiles of outstanding young people from every Nation.

An expanded and updated edition of Dr. Loew’s companion book for young readers, Native People of Wisconsin, is also available in print and e-book formats.
