This resource will help you understand how to evaluate resources and bring them into your classroom in light of LD291: An Act to Require Teaching of Maine Native History and Culture in Maine Schools, which requires Wabanaki content be taught in at least one grade from 6-8thgradesand be integrated into the curriculum from 9th-12thgrade starting in September 2003.

When teaching Wabanaki studies, it will be important to bring in resources that are culturally and historically accurate.  There are many resources currently available but it's hard to know where to start or what to include.  There's a rich and beautiful history to learn!
