If I were to receive an e-mail like this I would definitely reference Claire’s lecture since she can access it online through her blog. I would mention to her that I would think that there is an extra importance to teach treaty education if the students are being racist, because this can help create an understanding of the culture rather than the opinions they have now. The purpose of teaching treaty ed. is partially for that reason, to change society’s views. I look at the history curriculum, and it is kind of confusing that we learn a lot about the history of the countries we don’t even live on, and we don’t learn very much about the country we are on except for the explorers. That was my school experience anyways. I think that a lot of people do not know that we are all treaty people, and it is definitely important that people learn about it.
