New Tool: Implementing Meaningful STEM Learning with Indigenous Students & Families

Posted on November 06, 2014

The Next Generation Science Standards include a rich set of learner case studies that highlight how to differentiate instruction in order to support all students in science learning. Based on our research partnerships in the UW Institute for Science + Math Education and that of our collaborators, we thought that specific attention should be given to students coming to science learning experiences from Indigenous communities.

Marissa Spang authored this tool—in collaboration with Professors Megan Bang and Andy Shouse—for educators who teach science to Indigenous students and engage Indigenous families in science learning. It offers strategies that teachers can use to make science learning inclusive and meaningful for students and community members. Check it out.
