The Wisconsin Historical Society Press has updated the teacher's guide for Dr. Patty Loew's young readers classroom classic, "Native People of Wisconsin." This essential guide helps teachers guide students through their exploration of the stories and traditions of Wisconsin's twelve Native Nations.

With student activities tailored especially for the upper elementary classroom, the revised and expanded teacher's guide -- and Loew's companion book for young readers Native People of Wisconsin (sold separately) -- meets and exceeds the requirements of the Wisconsin American Indian Education Act (Act 31), providing exceptional and authentic teaching materials about tribal history in the form of a cd-rom.

Drawing from her research for her award-winning title for adults, "Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal," Loew 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 each Nation's unique cultural traditions, tribal history, and life today. Complete with maps, illustrations, and a detailed glossary of terms, this highly anticipated revised edition includes material on two new chapters in the "Native People of Wisconsin" book, on the Brothertown Indian Nation and on urban Indians. It also updates each tribe's current history and includes new profiles of outstanding young people from every Nation.
