ASSESSMENT STRATEGIES

PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES:

We chose to first focus on the language aspect of Inupiaq culture. The students took digital cameras into the community and took pictures of items typical of Eskimo culture.

I made the pictures into an I-photo slideshow and a worksheet (see below picture).

One of the bilingual teachers came to our class and taught us the Inupiaq words for all of the pictures. Students filled in the worksheet with the correct spellings as the bilingual teacher taught.




A multi-standard/multi-level/multi-content area Project: Cultures Affect Each Other [[1]]

When done researching the Native Alaskan Group's cultural elements, they use that information to show what they've learned through a picture book, diorama, Comic Life page, artificial village, mobile, or PowerPoint presentation. Each of the five Alaskan groups should be represented (individually, pairs, groups of 3). This would then be presented to classmates and family, followed by a potluck. This potluck would consist of foods from each of the five groups.
