NACA Inspired Schools Network Reading List

 

The NACA Inspired Schools Network (NISN) recruited ten expert teacher-designers to create a 6th through 12th grade Native Literature curriculum based on years of original curriculum design that melds fiction and nonfiction texts 1) by and about Indigenous peoples, 2) grounded in anti-bias/anti-racist and equity terminology and learning, 3) and guided by the Common Core State Standards. Each grade-level curriculum is aligned to the others under the conceptual auspice of Indigenous Identity & Joy, Empowerment, Equity, & Justice, and Analysis, Interpretation, & Synthesis and all yearlong and unit curriculum were designed using the research-based framework, Understanding by Design (UbD).  If you or your school/district are interested in adopting or adapting this open-sourced, free curriculum to our 6th-12th Grade Native Literature Program please contact Josh Krause: joshua@nacainspiredschoolsnetwork.org.
