This seminar will provide strategies for using web-based resources when teaching students about Native American history and culture. The seminar will discuss the means of determining reliable and authoritative educational sites for their own teaching and for student research. Central to the seminar will be a demonstration of how teachers might use the Newberry’s new “Indians of the Midwest” website. This website is the result of a three-year National Endowment of the Humanities sponsored project that brought together the world-renowned archival materials of the Newberry and the expertise of numerous prominent scholars in American Indian studies.

Seminar led by Scott Manning Stevens, Director of the Newberry’s D’Arcy McNickle Center
