By Patty Loew

This essential title explores the stories and traditions of Wisconsin's twelve Native Nations. Tailored especially for the upper elementary classroom, this edition of "The Native People of Wisconsin 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. The revised and expanded teachers guide, in the form of a cd-rom, also provides educators with additional materials that help make learning easier for students.

Based on her research for her award-winning title for adults, "Indian Nations of Wisconsin- Histories of Endurance and Renewal," Loew has geared this book specifically toward young readers. The "Native People of Wisconsin Teacher's Guide" directs instruction on the Native peoples' incredible resilience despite rapid change and the impact of European arrivals on Native culture. Young readers will become familiar with the unique cultural traditions, tribal history, and life today for each nation. Complete with maps, illustrations, and detailed glossary of terms, this highly anticipated edition includes two new chapters on the Brothertown Indian Nation and urban Indians, as well as updates on each tribe's current history and new profiles of outstanding young people from every nation.
