Thursday – Bi-weekly science chat

Join the MMSLN for a lunch time chat, Thursday October 22. The focus of this hour conversation with Dr. Angela Kolonich from the CREATE for STEM Institute at MSU will be science learning with Indigenous students. In addition to her role in CREATE, Dr. Kolonich is an affiliate faculty member of the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program at Michigan State, and works with the Native American Institute on campus to support Native American Students in STEM. Working with Dr. Christie Poitra and others, Angela will focus on a new grant titled “Growing Native American Pathways into Agriculture” and recently published a free access workbook titled: “Honoring the whole Student: Developing Space for Native American Students in STEM by Supporting Complex Identities. We will start our conversation using the findings from this article, Kolonich, A.,Richmond, G., & Krajcik, J. (2018). Reframing Inclusive Science Instruction to Support Teachers in Promoting Equitable Three-dimensional Science Classrooms. Journal of Science Teacher Education.(29)8, 693-711. Then we will have time for an extended question and answer time with Angie.
