Indian Resistance in Growing America


This Jackdaw is the appropriate reading level for upper elementary, middle school and high school students reading below grade level. It contains the same, ready-to-use, hands-on historical documents as the original, upper-level Jackdaw; most of the documents are actual-size replicas. The fully reproducible Broadsheets provide historical background for understanding the documents.

This Jackdaw and its hands-on documents — a Catlin map, historical illustrations, Jefferson’s notes, and a letter from a chief — will help students understand the white man’s “Indian problem,” and the Indian’s “white problem.” This Jackdaw teaches a wide scope of American Indian history, covering the subject from the 1600s to 1970s, from the East to West Coasts, and focusing on the key leaders of Indian nations. The documents provide a positive image of the Indians and their pleas for justice. Historian: Alvin M. Josephy, Jr., adapted by Muriel L. Dubois. The contents of this Jackdaw feature: Broadsheets
