The 2015 CSI offers key courses for Crow/Apsáalooke language teachers:

Teaching Crow Level 1 — practice with the Bíiluukaalilaah! Speak Crow! Level 1 textbook and Audio CD

Teaching Crow Level 2 — introduction to the Bíiluukaalilaah! Speak Crow! Level 2 textbook

Crow Phonology I

Crow Morphology I

These courses are essential to teachers’ effective classroom instruction. Studying Phonology and Morphology gives teachers a firm grounding in correct Crow/Apsáalooke pronunciation and word patterns — A way to see the language while still being inside it as you speak.

Then, the second-language teaching methods help teachers communicate what they know to their students. Physically involving games and activities work speaking and listening practice into the body.

Teachers have the option to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Little Big Horn College as part of their professional development through CSI.

CSI is not just for teachers – it’s for anyone who wants to learn Crow/Apsáalooke.
