Two-Eyed Seeing, or Etuaptmumk, is the concept of seeing our world, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), from both the western and Indigenous perspectives.
As part of NSERC’s Science Literacy Week, MindFuel is able to host this online workshop, with presenting partners, Gordon Naylor (Assistant Principal at Maskwacîs Cree High School) and Dawn Pratt (Founder of askenootow STEM Enterprise Inc.).
Presentations will highlight sharing of experiences teaching high school math to support student success, historical and contemporary issues affecting Indigenous People’s and western (mathematics) education, and practical and authentic strategies for educators to incorporate Indigenous perspectives in the classroom to support a more holistic approach in teaching and learning.
All participants will be provided with a storytelling activity that they can bring back to their classrooms and be entered into a draw with the chance to win a prize to further their learnings from the workshop.
This workshop is open to Grades 5-12 math educators. Please register by September 16th to guarantee your spot.
We look forward to connecting with you for what is sure to be an eye (and heart) opening workshop, that will set yourself and your students up for more effective and meaningful learning experiences of math this term.
