Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans

In this course, learners will join the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian to explore the impact of problematic narratives of Native Americans on U.S. society and education and learn ways to recognize and share more complete narratives both inside and outside the classroom. In addition, learners will explore Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°), the National Museum of the American Indian’s national initiative to inspire and support transformative teaching and learning about Native Americans. This course, based off a three-part live webinar series, is designed for education professionals who are new to incorporating more complete narratives about Native American histories, cultures, and contemporary lives into their teaching. Educators whose primary teaching focus is social studies, English language arts, or library sciences and who work with students in grades 4–12 are encouraged to enroll. Homeschoolers, parents, and others looking for digital educational resources about Native Americans can also register. This course will be especially helpful for educators who are just beginning to advance their practice of bringing Native perspectives to their curricula or anyone who wants to learn more about the importance of bringing Native perspectives and voices to the study of the country's history, cultures, and current events ~~~~
