Attorney General’s Advisory Committee on American Indian/Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence: Ending Violence so Children Can Thrive
Nov. 2014 report. Attorney General’s Advisory Committee on American Indian and Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence: Ending Violence So Children Can Thrive This report was created as part of the Defending Childhood Initiative created by Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. This initiative strives to harness resources from across the Department of Justice to: • Prevent children’s exposure to violence; • Mitigate the negative impact of children’s exposure to violence when it does occur; and • Develop knowledge and spread awareness about children’s exposure to violence. The U.S. Attorney General's advisory committee on Native children says prevention, treatment programs and case workers have proven to be more effective than incarceration.

American Indian Boarding Schools Haunt Many : NPR
"In 1886, the government published the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to the Secretary of the Interior. It established the attitudes of Indian Affairs Agents in the early days of federal boarding schools. The report was a compilation of agent reports; the agents largely saw Indians as savages who should be compelled using whatever means necessary to send their children to schools." "In the 1920s, the federal government commissioned a groundbreaking investigation into the outcome of government policies toward American Indians, including boarding schools. The report that followed in 1928, The Problem of Indian Administration (also called the Meriam Report after Lewis Meriam, who supervised the study), found that children at federal boarding schools were malnourished, overworked, harshly punished and poorly educated." "More than 40 years after the Meriam Report . . . a report known as the Kennedy Report declared Indian education a national tragedy."

Indian Student Placement Services - The Encyclopedia of Mormonism
"The Indian Student Placement Services was established among native americans by the LDS Church in part to fulfill the obligation felt by the Church to help care for the Indians in the Americas (2 Ne. 10:18-19). The program places Indian students in Latter-day Saint homes, where they live while attending the public school of the community during the academic year. Another goal of Indian Student Placement Services, in addition to giving Indian youth better opportunities for education, has been to develop leadership and to promote greater understanding between Indians and non-Indians. The program started in 1947 in Richfield, Utah, when Helen John, a sixteen-year-old daughter of Navajo beet-field workers, requested permission to stay in Richfield to attend school.

Native American mascots challenged in [Seattle] Washington - Indian Country News
By Donna Gordon Blankinship Seattle, Washington (AP) October 2012. "The state Board of Education is making another attempt at encouraging Washington schools to replace their Native American mascots. In the past decade, about 10 schools have given up their Indian mascots. But another 50, including tribal schools, are holding fast to their nicknames as warriors, braves, redskins and red devils. The state board passed a resolution urging districts to stop using Native American mascots, but as board spokesman Aaron Wyatt acknowledges, it does not have the authority to mandate this change. There are no consequences for schools that do not voluntarily choose a new mascot, Wyatt said. Washington’s resolution, which is similar to resolution passed by the board in 1993, was inspired by research by the American Psychological Association citing the adverse effects of Native American mascots on students [and] also mentions the widening achievement gap between Native American and other students."

Steven Pinker | Profile on TED.com
Steven Pinker's books have been like bombs tossed into the eternal nature-versus-nurture debate. Pinker asserts that not only are human minds predisposed to certain kinds of learning, such as language, but that from birth our minds -- the patterns in which our brain cells fire -- predispose us each to think and behave differently.
His deep studies of language have led him to insights into the way that humans form thoughts and engage our world. He argues that humans have evolved to share a faculty for language, the same way a spider evolved to spin a web. We aren't born with “blank slates” to be shaped entirely by our parents and environment, he argues in books including The Language Instinct; How the Mind Works; and The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature.

His book The Stuff of Thought was previewed at TEDGlobal 2005. His latest book, The Better Angels of Our Nature, looks at our notion of violence.

Research on how the brain develops and learns has the potential to have a profound impact on education. Indeed, understanding the brain mechanisms that underlie learning and memory, and the effects of age, genetics, the environment, emotion and motivation on learning could transform educational strategies and enable us to design programs that optimise learning for people of all ages and of all needs. Neuroscience can already offer some understanding of how the brain learns new information and processes this information throughout life ( [Blakemore and Frith, 2005], [Goswami, 2006] and [Shonkoff and

What Students Can Actually DO With An iPad | Diigo
The author, Beth Holland, writes:
However, before addressing that question, I asked not only WHY iPads but WHY Technology? Because….

I want my students to communicate in complex and modern ways.
I want my students to make their thinking visible as an alternative assessment.
I want my students to document their thinking as they work through a process.
I want my students to have multiple ways through which to interact with learning objects.

What does this tangibly look like in the classroom? One English teachers asked where to even begin, so we started with a set of content-specific learning objectives.

sidenote: it's interesting to me that the iPad is basically 3 years old, having in this year of 2012 a 3rd generation (but not called the iPad 3) iPad.

Universities are failing at teaching social media - Fortune Tech
FORTUNE -- "Overall, the higher education system is failing to prepare students with the needed digital and social skill set in any meaningful way," says Dr. William Ward of Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. "Higher education, like business, needs a culture shift." Ward teaches COM 400, Social Media U Need 2 Know, and COM 600, Social Media Theory and Practice at Syracuse. His offerings are among only a handful of credit-bearing social media courses offered at leading universities today. For Ward, who goes by the handle @DR4WARD on Twitter and has nearly 10,000 followers, the imperative for more courses is clear. "Students with social media certification are getting better jobs and internships," he says. "Those who harness social communications are in high demand and have an advantage."

So Many Hands to Hold in the Classroom - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Over the 17 years I've taught writing at the college level, I used to occasionally have a student who was afraid to choose a topic for an essay, or even to ask a question, because she didn't know what was "right." One young man chose not to turn in an assignment at all, because he didn't understand the instructions and was afraid to say so. Now, instead of the occasional student in this condition, I'm getting classrooms full.

US Federal Office of Indian Education home of programs and initiatives including Title VII.
The mission of the Office of Indian Education is to support the efforts of local educational agencies, Indian tribes and organizations, postsecondary institutions, and other entities to meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indians and Alaska Natives so that these students can achieve to the same challenging state standards as all students.

The No Child Left Behind Act amends the Indian education programs as Title VII, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This landmark in education reform embodies four key principles: stronger accountability for results; greater flexibility in the use of federal funds; more choices for parents of children from disadvantaged backgrounds; and an emphasis on research-based instruction that works.

The Problem Is: You Write Too Well - Advice - The Chronicle of Higher Education
I spent a day talking with untenured professors about revising their dissertations into book manuscripts.
All of the faculty members I met had managed to score a great teaching job right out of graduate school. They had impressive pedigrees and a lot of enthusiasm. But many of them kept making the same strange remark—one that tends to pop up whenever I speak with folks who are hard at work massaging their dissertations into book manuscripts. "People on my dissertation committee," explained several young scholars, "said that I write too well."
At first those remarks made me wonder what kinds of idiots are overseeing the process of doling out Ph.D.'s. Are there really academics who spout such nonsense? If so, those people should be sued for scholarly malpractice.
The only thing that kept me from dismissing the claim outright is that there seems to be a general sense in academe—usually expressed only verbally—that if you write too clearly or too well, you will be punished.

The Poor Quality of an Undergraduate Education - NYTimes.com
In recent surveys of college seniors, more than 90 percent report gaining subject-specific knowledge and developing the ability to think critically and analytically. Almost 9 out of 10 report that overall, they were satisfied with their collegiate experiences.
We would be happy to join in the celebrations if it weren’t for our recent research, which raises doubts about the quality of undergraduate learning in the United States.
We found that large numbers of the students were making their way through college with minimal exposure to rigorous coursework, only a modest investment of effort and little or no meaningful improvement in skills like writing and reasoning.

On Students Who Are Full of It - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education
My thesis is not new, but it seems especially urgent right now, because it flies in the face of two powerful prevailing winds. On the one hand, there is the current crude reductionism of education to a financial transaction, masked by the pseudoscientific jargon of "outcomes assessment" and "value added." On the other hand, faculty are obliged to have a heightened reactivity to any whiffs of crazy—the hard-won lesson of incidents like the Virginia Tech rampage.
I think we also need to look closer to home, to the intolerance created by our own vanity. As teachers, we are heavily invested in the virtue of impartiality. We develop protocols to ensure fairness, and we stick to them. But of course every student is different, and of course, like most human creatures, we hate the feeling of being disrespected

The Poor Quality of an Undergraduate Education - NYTimes.com
In a typical semester . . . 32 percent of the students did not take a single course with more than 40 pages of reading per week, and 50 percent did not take any course requiring more than 20 pages of writing over the semester. The average student spent only about 12 to 13 hours per week studying — about half the time a full-time college student in 1960 spent studying,
Not surprisingly, a large number of the students showed no significant progress on tests of critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing that were administered when they began college and then again at the ends of their sophomore and senior years.
Why is the overall quality of undergraduate learning so poor?
"students are taught by fewer full-time tenured faculty . Simply put: academic investments are a lower priority.
The authority of educators has diminished, and students are increasingly thought of, by themselves and their colleges, as “clients” or “consumers.” 
Federal legislation has facilitated this shift.

From Professor Back to Student, With Complaint - Do Your Job Better - The Chronicle of Higher Education
"As I write, the semester is halfway over, and I have not yet said anything to the student sitting next to me in my computer class.

I am trying to mind my own business. I am trying to go with the flow. I am trying to understand why she logs onto Facebook at the start of class and posts continually for the duration. It has been amazing to watch. And distracting.
I am a full-time English professor at a community college in Massachusetts. This semester I am also on sabbatical, part of which involves becoming a student again.

Why do students need to log into Facebook during class? Why can't they just leave it alone for 75 minutes?
As an instructor, I find the action of students' periodically checking Facebook during my class to be rude. I work hard on the lesson plan for each day, and I expect their full attention. Logging into Facebook and posting a new status while I am talking or explaining an assignment is similar to chatting continually with friends right in front of me."

5 Myths About the 'Information Age' - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Confusion about the nature of the so-called information age has led to a state of collective false consciousness. It's no one's fault but everyone's problem, because in trying to get our bearings in cyberspace, we often get things wrong, and the misconceptions spread so rapidly that they go unchallenged. Taken together, they constitute a font of proverbial nonwisdom. Five stand out: 1."The book is dead." Wrong; 2. We have entered the information age." every age is an age of information, each in its own way and according to the media available at the time. 3. "All information is now available online." The absurdity of this claim is obvious to anyone who has ever done research in archives. Only a tiny fraction of archival material has ever been read, much less digitized.4. "Libraries are obsolete." Everywhere in the country librarians report that they have never had so many patrons. 5. "The future is digital." True enough, but misleading.

Project MUSE - Wicazo Sa Review - "No Place to Go": The Thomas Indian School and the "Forgotten" Indian Children of New York
The Thomas Indian School on the Cattaraugus Seneca Reservation in western New York State. For more than 100 years, thousands of Indian children in New York State were sent there with little hope of reuniting with their parents or siblings, culture, language, or way of life.  And because missionaries founded Thomas as an orphanage, it [hasn't] received the same attention as better-known federally funded boarding schools. [Yet] it predated and lasted longer than many of those schools, and affected many more generations of Indian children from the reservations of New York, leaving scars still visible today. Thus, the story of the Thomas Indian School is not only about the destruction of Indian language and culture, it's also, perhaps most importantly, about the dissolution of Indian families in the face of the changes that swept their reservations in the first half of the 20th century, leaving Indian children vulnerable and dependent upon Indian boarding schools for their very survival.

David H. DeJong - "Unless They Are Kept Alive": Federal Indian Schools and Student Health, 1878-1918 - The American Indian Quarterly 31:2
During the first decades of the federal government's Indian boarding schools, stories of morbidity and mortality among students were prevalent. Don't Know How, a Lakota father, shared an all-too-common experience. Anticipating the return of his daughter from Hampton (Virginia) Institute, Don't Know How constructed a new house, purchased a store, and adopted—to the extent he could—the trappings of white America. His daughter, meanwhile, returned from Hampton suffering from consumption. Within days she succumbed to the scourge of Indian Country: tuberculosis. Soon thereafter, Don't Know How's other daughter departed for Hampton, where in a few years she followed her sister "to the little cemetery on the hill."1 In Hampton's first ten years of educating American Indian students, one of every eleven students died (31 of 304) at school and one of every five died—as did Don't Know How's daughters—soon after returning home.

Angela Cavender Wilson - Decolonizing the 1862 Death Marches - The American Indian Quarterly 28:1&2
Early scholarship on the topic of 1862 revealed a hatred for Dakota people and a clear sense of white superiority. Rampant throughout these narratives is terminology reflective of this perspective. Typical of colonial interlopers on Indigenous lands, writers from the era regularly used words such as "massacre," "slaughter," and "atrocity" to describe Dakota actions upon "innocent," "pure," "brave," white settlers. The Dakota, on the other hand, were depicted as "savages," "red devils," "blood-thirsty [End Page 191] demons," "wretches," "beasts," "fiendish perpetrators," and even "government-pampered" Indians, as Minnesota's first schoolteacher Harriet Bishop McConkey described us.12 McConkey's work is representative of many early Wasicu accounts of the war as well as the views held by many of those early Euroamerican settlers.

Lawrence William Gross - Teaching American Indian Studies to Reflect American Indian Ways of Knowing and to Interrupt Cycles of Genocide - Wicazo Sa Review 20:2
Lawrence W. Gross is a member of the Minnesota Chippewa tribe and is enrolled in the White Earth nation. He has taught at Iowa State University in the American Indian studies program and religious studies. He writes, He says, "When it comes to teaching American Indians, much of the pedagogy focuses on teaching a given topic to American Indians, whereas, with non-Indian students, the emphasis is on teaching about American Indians. On the surface, it seems reasonable that special attention be paid to the cultural imperatives of sovereignty and nation building implicit in instructing American Indians and that sensitivity be shown in teaching non-Indians about Indians, and the point is not to question the good work being performed in this area.3 However, some of the assumptions underlying these different approaches need to be challenged, [as] they perpetuate racial separation and undermine efforts to diversify the academy.

He was editor of the American Indian Culture and Research Journal from 1986 to 2003. He has authored and edited more than one hundred publications, including Native America: Portraits of the Peoples, The Native North American Almanac, et al.
I find myself in an unusual situation, having just recently been denied reappointment as director of the American Indian Studies Center at UCLA. Certainly, that experience motivated the editor, Lee Francis, to call and ask me to write a personal story about my experiences with American Indian studies in general, but, more specifically, to write about the recent trend toward submerging American Indian studies into ethnic studies programs, or sometimes anthropology departments, American studies or other units or departments. [This] submerges the study of indigenous peoples into mainstream academic orientations and understandings.

E-Books' Varied Formats Make Citations a Mess for Scholars - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education
As e-reading devices gain popu­larity, professors and students are struggling to adapt them to an academic fun­damental: proper citations, which other scholars can use.
The trouble is that in electronic formats, there are no fixed pages. The Kindle, developed by Amazon, does away with page numbers entirely. Along with other e-book readers, the Kindle allows users to change font style and size, so the number of words on a screen can vary. Instead of pages, it uses "location numbers" that relate to a specific part of a book.  The inability to find passages limits scholarly research, academics complain, because they depend on citations not only to track down and analyze text, but also as a testament to the accuracy of their own work. the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, the [APA], The Chicago Manual of Style—have taken steps to answer the question of how to cite e-books. But many scholars are unaware of such guidelines, or find the new citation styles awkward.

World-Class Greatness at a Land-Grant University Near You? - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Academic competition this fall[2010]—the annual greatness rankings of American and world universities—is also upon us. As if that weren't enough excitement, the National Research Council rankings, which are supposed to be released every 10 years but have been delayed for some time now, will soon be made public. . . The long delay in release may have been due to great unhappiness of interested parties about the results. But administrators of public and private universities apparently believe they need those rankings to validate their claims to world-class greatness.

It's wrong that many land-grant institutions have been sucked into the competitive university-ranking business and have strayed from their mission.

Land-grant universities should get back to the business of . . . teaching at a level sufficient to prepare people in their states to be competitive in the job market

Invisible Universe Documentary
Invisible Universe: a history of blackness in speculative fiction explores the relationship between the Black body and popular fantasy, horror and science fiction literature and film and the alternative perspectives produced by creators of color. This documentary features interviews with major writers, scholars, artists and filmmakers and explores comics, television, film and literature by deconstructing stereotyped images of Black people in the genres. The Invisible Universe documentary ultimately reveals how Black creators have been consciously creating their own universe.

Donations needed to finish this film. Since 2003, the filmmakers have been traveling to conduct interviews nationwide and have been incurring mounting expenses for equipment and supplies to finish this project, most of it coming out of the filmmakers' pockets. We have already accumulated hours of footage and believe with your help, we can bring this feature length documentary to life!
