    Native American Pedagogy details a study that investigated the teaching of mathematics to Oneida Indian kindergartners. This study proves that Native American children who are taught with culturally sensitive methods will perform more successfully on mathematical problem solving tasks, and that Cognitively Guided Instruction, an approach that provides teachers with research-based knowledge of how children learn mathematics, enables such culturally sensitive teaching methods.

    Chapter 1: Statement of the Problem, Chapter 2: A Literature Review of Native American Pedagogy and Cognitively Guided Instruction, Chapter 3: Design of the Study, Chapter 4: Findings, Chapter 5: Discussion.
