North Star Dakotan

The North Dakota Studies program is pleased to announce the addition of the The North Star Dakotan as part of the resources at ndstudies.gov. These five issues and accompanying Teacher Guides are available for use by students, teachers, and others. 

The North Star Dakotan provides education resources not only for fourth grade, eighth grade, and high school North Dakota Studies classes but also for cross-curricular applications for K-12 classrooms. The first five issues of The North Star Dakotan were edited by Dr. D. Jerome Tweton and designed by the late Everett Albers, former executive director of the North Dakota Humanities Council.
 
These issues of The North Star Dakotan are made possible through collaboration with the North Dakota Humanities Council.
