Teacher’s Guide

Sign up at the bottom of this page to download a free PDF of the First Inquiry of the DAWNLAND Teacher’s Guide. The guide contains 12 lessons.

The Compelling Question of the DAWNLAND Teacher’s Guide is: What is the Relationship Between the Taking of the Land and the Taking of the Children?

This question frames the study across 12 lessons and will help students collect and organize evidence to support an argument that answers the question. The guide is freely available as an online resource.

Alternatively, the Dawnland Viewer’s Guide is a shorter option for community screening hosts, gathering circles, Native centers, neighborhood groups, book clubs, faith organizations, librarians, and people who love documentary film will find helpful information and resources to enrich their viewing.

The Dawnland Teacher’s Guide is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
