The National Museum of the America Indian is in the early planning stages for an exhibit on the Native people of New York State and the surrounding regions. They are hoping to gain insights into how teachers are covering historic and contemporary issues around Native Americans in their classrooms so that they can best integrate the needs of students and teachers into the exhibition.
If you are currently teaching, or have recently taught content related to Native Americans from the Northeast, they would appreciate hearing your input by having you fill out the survey at the link below. The more details you can share about the resources that inform your work, the projects you do with children, and the things that you think would be most valuable as learning experiences for your students, the better they will be able to use your input to create a dynamic and meaningful exhibit. If you have questions, contact Marissa Corwin, Intern, Education/Public Programs Department, National Museum of the American Indian New York, New York, CorwinM@si.edu
As a thank you, you will automatically be entered in a raffle to win one of the three books below by completing the survey.
