- Constructed elementary level COMPANION GUIDES—to provide guidance for instruction that incorporates IEFA resources aligned with Montana Common Core English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects Standards that have been identified as facilitating information about American Indians.”
- Links to the COMPANION GUIDES are available on the Indian Education web pages, as well as the Montana Common Core Standards web pages. You can also find them here.
The Indian Education division has also revised its elementary literature units to reflect MCCS alignment. As the introduction to the revised teaching units points out, these “IEFA units feature text dependent questions—those which specifically ask questions that can only be answered by referring explicitly back to the text being read—promoting close analytic reading.”
