Hi. I am a student at OSU and recently we turned in a lesson plan. I
planned a lesson for the issue of culture loss. I will be using the
example of the Ojibwa Indians dealing with their loss of culture and
acceptance of the new American culture. I will discuss the change in
their traditions and culture through the transitions of this country.
*** What I would like the students to do is to become aware of some
ideas of how American has changed since it was "discovered", identify
the roles society plays in these changes, and make connections with
thier own heritage.*** As for the method, I (as a teacher) will give a
brief, clear, historical lecture on culture loss in the Ojibwa Indians
and provide examples through interpreting Ojibwa artwork. I would like
the students to begin their project by researching the changes in
American/their own society and making a family tree to help them
identify with their heritage. Then, as the final product, I want them
to make an artwork (collage) based on their own understanding of their
individual culture loss.

In this plan I have two questions. First, my prof. said that my lesson
plan is good but I need to be more specific in what the students should
know (the *** section). Any suggestions?

My second question is what is the difference between "idea" and "issue"?

Thank you, Shawna
