The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and OSSE invite English Language Arts (ELA) grades 3-12 teachers to the second session in a three-part series: Culturally Relevant Literacy Instruction. In this session participants will:
- Increase their content knowledge and pedagogical practices to teach Native American history and culture in culturally appropriate ways.
- Engage in hands-on workshops to critically examine media and educational materials with an emphasis on social studies-related art activities and enhance them with learning opportunities that are culturally appropriate and student-centered.
- Effectively identify, access, and utilize new resources—including the NMAI's Native Knowledge 360°materials—in their classroom to increase inclusion for all students.
For questions, please contact Ashleigh Tillman at [email protected] or Renee Gokey at [email protected]. Save the date for part three of this workshop series, Theory to Practice: Planning for a Culturally Responsive Literacy Classroom, taking place on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., location TBD.
