Western science is steeped in Western culture. How might that inhibit or exclude students with other cultural backgrounds from learning? How do we create instructional practices that welcome and develop a wide spread interest in STEM fields? What is meant by Indigenous Ways of Knowing? In this workshop participants will experience practices that can be used in the classroom and learn about Indigenous Ways of Knowing.
Brandon Williams, Archaeological Technician II, Falcon Cultural Resources and Clarissa James, Curriculum Development Specialist, Falcon Cultural Resources will join in leading and facilitating the workshop.
