Primary Source Learning: Native American Indian Perspectives


In celebration of Native American Heritage month, the Teaching with the Library of Congress blog provides some great suggestions for teaching students to view the experiences and contributions of Native American Indians from various perspectives. Links to more Native American teaching resources are listed below and you’ll find even more primary source resources from around the Library via the PSN curated Native American Heritage themed link set.

Lesson Plans & Activity Ideas

Comparing sources from multiple perspectives provides students with practice in critical thinking and evaluating evidence and arguments, skills emphasized by the Common Core English Language Arts Standards (CCSS), particularly CCSS anchor reading standards 4, 6, 7 and 9.
