Haudenosaunee: Consensus Building in Community


In Unit 1, students will read and listen closely to interpret main ideas and thematic connections between visual imagery (symbols and graphics), oral tradition (Haudenosaunee video) and diverse texts (“Birth of the Haudenosaunee”, Two Row Wampum, and Frost’s “A Time to Talk”). Students will create symbols that relate to the texts and write explanatory paragraphs about how their student created personal symbols connect to the ideas in the texts.
