Analysis Of The Lakota Way

One of the last values from The Lakota Way that really sticks with me is the idea of generosity. The story from this chapter that stuck out to me was about Sees the Bear and Left Hand.

They will have to go back and reteach information the students should already know. This becomes very difficult as they do not have a good gage of what they students remember from previous years and what all they need to start fresh with. This is why I must be a team player and help the next teacher. I must do everything I can to have my students ready for the next grade and make sure they are learning everything I am teaching throughout the
