Students will understand that education was used as a tool to “Americanize” Native American children, and that museums and textbooks shape what Americans know about history.

Students will explore the questions: Over the course of US history, how has access to a quality education been restricted by race and class? What does it mean when museums/textbooks leave out the stories of certain groups of people?

Content Objectives: Students will be able to explain the conditions and effects of American Indian boarding schools.

Language Objectives: Students will be able to write about American Indian boarding schools using content area (Tier 2 and 3) vocabulary.
