Summary

It is estimated that between 40-60% of American Indian students drop out of school each year. Klug and Whitfield take a critical look at the issues of American Indian education to suggest a way to change this trend. Recognizing the need for a pedagogy that better serves American Indian students, Widening the Circle constructs a culturally relevant model of teaching that blends native and non-native worldviews and methods. Among the building blocks of this new pedagogy are the use of oral histories to supplement traditional texts and a re-evaluation of the knowledge base these students need for academic success.
