Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°) is the National Museum of the American Indian’s national initiative to inspire and support transformative teaching and learning about Native Americans. This free, three-part 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 register. We also invite homeschoolers, parents, and others looking for digital educational resources about Native Americans.
The series will be especially helpful for educators who are just beginning to advance their practice of bringing Native perspectives to their curricula.
Webinar One: Tuesday, July 21—Learn about the history of problematic narratives about Native Americans, its impact on society, and why it matters today.
Webinar Two: Wednesday, July 22—Discuss how the strategies students use to investigate primary and secondary sources can help to transform their understanding of Native Americans.
Webinar Three: Thursday, July 23—This session will focus on the NK360° digital lesson about Northern Plains History and Cultures. Attendees will consider ways to implement elements of the lesson in their classrooms and curricula.
