Native American Students in ClassroomSupport and Strategies for Enriching Achievement of Native American Students
Districts and schools that serve Native American students can help improve the educational outcomes of this group by employing a number of successful strategies. These include using small-group and team-based instructional approaches; infusing indigenous history, culture, and language into curricula and instruction; and providing opportunities for students and their families to engage in relevant school-based activities. These and other strategies are outlined in the response to an information request recently completed by SEDL’s Southeast Comprehensive Center. Learn more.
