Course Redesign Update: June 13 - Classical Overview and... Hiawatha
Posted by Laura Gibbs
I worked on all kinds of things today, all fun! I've included the Google+ post below about getting the Classical Unit overview page set up, and I also worked on proofreading more of the Native American units: Hiawatha (I think the students will be really intrigued by that!), and I was so pleased with the children's book, American Indian Fairy Tales, that retells some of the same stories, using Schoolcraft as a source just as Longfellow did. That book also has some wonderful illustrations, like this depiction of the North Wind in the story: Shin-ge-bis Fools the North Wind.
