REL Central has received multiple requests to identify the research literature on effective teaching of Native students. In this compilation, abstracts are included unedited, as they were obtained from public sources. The compilation is a first step in identifying the extant research base for effective teaching of American Indian, Alaskan and Hawaiian Native students. The compilation of abstracts includes 128 unique abstracts. They are divided into five topics (Language Needs of Native Speakers, The Effect of Family & Community Involvement, Alternative Instructional Techniques, Culturally Responsive Teaching, and Standards-Based Instruction), which in turn are subdivided into a total of 25 sub-topics.
