The greatest investment your school can make in the language is to allow each child to have their own copy of a textbook . This setup allows students to use the textbook outside of Lakota class, while also giving them the option of taking the book home and sharing it with family members. Because the textbook becomes a reference for the family, it contributes immensely to bringing the language back into your community. Finally, the textbooks are sequenced and build on each other. Allowing students to have a Level 1 textbook gives them an indispensable resource for the Level 2 textbooks and beyond.
If your school just wants to outfit your Lakota studies department and to provide teachers with training, the Department Outfit is the best solution. It provides enough classroom sets for 2 or more classrooms. Books stay with the teacher.
If your school is not ready to begin teaching Lakota school-wide or needs a pilot program, then the Classroom outfit is often the best match. It provides enough books and materials for one average-sized classroom and training for one teacher.
