Mathematics Lesson Interactions and Contexts for American Indian Students in Plains Region Schools: An Exploratory Study


Audience(s): Teachers and Administrators

Product Description:

This study offers descriptions and comparison of six lessons taught to American Indian students. The descriptions provide a snapshot of practices that are often considered "best practices" for American Indian and other students. Although the results raise more questions than they answer, the study gives readers a framework for reflecting on classroom practices and asking if American Indian students are truly engaged in learning.

Key Ideas:

The findings of this study suggest that American Indian students experience different levels of cognitive challenge when their teachers use alternative approaches to mathematics. These findings highlight the need to sustain and expand partnership research on what works for improving American Indian student achievement.
