Reimagining the Science Classroom: Building Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Partnerships
Buck, Shane
BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, v11 n2 p31-35 2019
This article examines factors that are limiting the effectiveness of science education among Indigenous learners. The science classroom requires a fundamental change in its structure. There needs to be an increased focus on defining and examining Indigenous knowledge, on incorporating activities that meet relational needs by using traditional Indigenous ways of knowing, and on the appropriate synthesis of multiple cultural views within the Western science curriculum.
