SANTA CRUZ– Teacher Workshop: A Native Perspective for History and Social Sciences Curriculum

SANTA CRUZ–Join the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History for a collaborative workshop connecting local educators with tribal leaders and scholars.

Chairman Valentine Lopez, and Sara French, the Director of Programs and Development of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, will share the history and culture of local native tribes and their thoughts about the strengths and areas for growth on current representation in schools.

Teacher-leader Angela Stone (4th grade teacher, Amesti Elementary School) will facilitate a collaboration with teachers to create or adjust curriculum incorporating this perspective.

This workshop aims to deepen your knowledge, answer your questions, and increase clarity about the native cultures of the region, providing you with best practices and appropriate terminology to incorporate content as you align your lessons to new History-Social Sciences Frameworks.
