Professional Development: Cultural Curiosity in the Classroom

October 10, 2018

Cultural Curiosity in the Classroom

FREE WORKSHOP FOR TEACHERS

October 27th 8 am - 5 pm

Mt Hood Community College GE (General Education)201

Lunch Included

Culture is something everybody has. With a willingness to be curious, participants will gain cultural self-awareness and cross-cultural understanding to become co-responsible for building healthy communities. This day-long workshop is for teachers across multiple content areas, including social studies, science and arts. It will provide guiding principles in teaching Tribal history as Oregon history and take-home activities for educators to engage students on a journey of inclusivity that includes fostering social learning, teaching multiple perspectives, understanding implicit bias, sovereignty, and the intersection of history, culture and place from a multicultural framework. Activities and guidelines were adapted from REACH (Respecting Ethnic And Cultural Heritage) and Since Time Immemorial curriculum from the State of Washington. Traditional Ecological Knowledge and the Next Generation Science Standards are included in this workshop.

To register email: Erikaconfluenceproject.org

Workshop leaders: Robin Butterfield, Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and White Earth Ojibwas Tribe of Minnesota and Ciarra Greene, Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) and mixed European descent.

Cultural Curiosity in the Classroom is a professional development project of Confluence made possible by the Gray Family Foundation
