Quotes from Teaching Truly: A Curriculum to Indigenize Mainstream Education by Four Arrows (Don Trent Jacobs)

Reasoning is demonstrated by thinking things through before one acts and by talking things through in conflict situations instead of resorting to violence. Reasoning is also demonstrated by problem solving in which one works to clarify what the facts are and then looks for the best choices to solve the problem. Reasoning is important in helping us to improve our choices when we are presented with facts or other viewpoints that raise our level of understanding. It is obviously an important value for students in school as well as in life outside of school. Such reasoning as relates to educational hegemony and the corporatizing of the standardized curriculum is also important.” ~ Teaching Truly Pg 55
