EDU 327 Curriculum and Instruction UMFK students at the Acadian Archives/Archives acadiennes along with (on the right-hand side kneeling) Lise Pelletier, Director of the Acadian Archives; behind her is Dr. Doris Metz, Associate Professor of Education.     

 

Under the guidance of Dr. Doris Metz, the University of Maine at Fort Kent education students in her Curriculum and Instruction class, in a collaborative effort with the Acadian Archives/Archives acadiennes, created a 125-page booklet of lesson plans for grades Pre-K to graduation.

General topics on Native peoples include: clothing, history of the Madawaska territory, myths and legends, tools, and traditional arts. All lessons may be adapted and modified to meet the needs of students. Each lesson also includes websites, which may be researched for further information and for clarification.
 
The book “The Maliseet and the Settlement of the Madawaska Territory” may be borrowed from the Acadian Archives’ library.
 
For further information on the book, please contact the Acadian Archives at 834-7535.
