ABOUT THIS VIRTUAL SERIES
In this interactive and practical series, science educators of all levels will engage with the concept of decolonizing their curricula, as well as reflect on concepts, tools, and resources that can be integrated into specific lessons and content. Shifting away from euro-centric, white supremacist structures and classroom power dynamics, participants will debunk the assumption that this work can happen more naturally in the humanities. Throughout the series, participants will have the opportunity to build or workshop lessons with fellow educators and develop a long-term plan for continuing this work within their departments, divisions, and school communities.
- Reflect on their identities to bring awareness of how this may impact their curriculum development
- Engage with practical tools and resources to begin the ongoing process of decolonizing Science curricula
- Build a community with fellow educators committed to the ongoing reflection and practice necessary to commit to this work fully
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
Directors of Curriculum and Instruction and K-12 science educators.
