Want to learn more about a soon-to-be-rolled-out statewide curriculum on the American Indian experience in Oregon? Check out this video from Education Northwest describing Tribal History/Shared History. This new curriculum will include 45 lesson plans across grades 4, 8 and 10 in subject areas such as language arts, math, social studies, health and science.

“It’s an invitation and an opportunity to teach the rich history of our land and its people and to pair the strengths of our education system, teachers and students with the new knowledge and content the curriculum will establish,” says Shadiin Garcia, who partnered with Education Northwest and the Oregon Department of Education to create the curriculum.
