Reclaiming the Narrative: Teaching the Truth about Native American Boarding Schools, Part 2

July 11, 2022

Part 2 Lessons and Resources: Focus on Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12

Join us for part two of this two-part professional learning series about teaching the true history of Native American boarding schools in your classroom.

Part two will focus on culturally responsive and trauma-informed guidelines and resources for teaching about Native American boarding schools in your classroom.

Using adapted trauma-informed principles as a guide, we will explore developmentally appropriate lesson plans and resources that can be used in the classroom. Educators will make connections between this topic and the state social studies standards and have the opportunity to discuss with others where they can begin to work this topic into their existing units and lessons.

Designed and facilitated in collaboration by the ADE Office of Indian Education and Social Studies Standards, and the Phoenix Indian School Visitor Center, this professional learning series is geared towards educators of all backgrounds. However, educators of Native American/Indigenous students are especially encouraged to attend.

If you did not attend part one of this series, be sure to watch the recording before attending part two!
