All federal boarding schools, whether on or off reservation, shared certain characteristics. The Bureau of Indian Affairs issued directives that were followed by superintendents throughout the nation. Even the architecture and landscaping appeared similar from one institution to the next.

By reading the Reports of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs and other documents you can compare the official reports submitted by various schools.
Where to find time for that, however? Time is a valuable and scarce resource for any college student. You can’t squeeze 95 hours out of a 79-hour day. What you can do, however, is have somebody else deal with the most theory-focused part of your studies – academic papers.
For some students, the desire for freedom and the pull of their family combined with strong discontent caused them to run away.

Students can work in all four styles, but tend to develop strengths in one or two of the styles. Each of these styles tends toward one of four dimensions of mathematical learning: computation, explanation, application, or problem solving. If teachers incorporate all four styles into a math unit, they will build in computation skills (Mastery), explanations and proofs (Understanding), collaboration and real-world application (Interpersonal), and nonroutine problem solving (Self-Expressive) (p. 79).

The taxonomy is helpful for breaking down state standards into meaningful components as teachers plan their instruction. Planning for instruction will be elaborated upon in Part 8 of this essay on content and curriculum mapping.
