Overview of chat topic
- Topic: Indian Ed: Leadership and Policy
Questions from the chat:
- 1 – What is Indian education to you and what is your role? Please provide some insight into your classroom and/or school.
A1) Indian Ed looks different by district. It should provide supports to NatAm Ss and provide cultural experiences for all Ss. #oklaed— Twylla Hester (@TwyllaHester) March 27, 2017
- 2 – In the past, Oklahoma calls itself Native America…Do we agree? Discuss imagery, qualities, values that you manifest in your classroom, school.
A2b One challenge is keeping cultural awareness, history, &pride strong as NAs become more ethnically blended into the Okla fabric #oklaed— Linda Hasler Reid (@lindahaslerreid) March 27, 2017
- 3 – What is a lesson you’ve taught on Native Americans? How did you celebrate them?
#Oklaed A3) as a T i was fortunate 2 erect a teepee w/ my Ss & i ensured everyone helped…that was the expectation— doubledown (@FunstonWM) March 27, 2017
- 4 – Native students are a subset of the student population in public schools. What are some strategies you have to encourage growth?
- 5 – How do you encourage Native American parents/guardian to support their students for growth/success?
- 6 – In terms of sensitive pedagogy…how do you approach your students when teaching about Columbus Day and/or Land Run reenactments?
- 7 – There are 39 federally recognized Nations/tribes in Oklahoma…discuss possible partnerships you can include your curriculum. You can include past partnerships.
