Training and Resources for Teachers, Administrators and Community Leaders

Digital Tools and Place-Based Practice

  • Work with elders and other community knowledge bearers to create curriculum with students.
  • Design and guide student-community development of a digital Cultural Resource Atlas that can serve as a curriculum platform for all content areas.
  • Create a digital storytelling curriculum platform to further connect student learning to important people and events within the community.
  • Adapt the culturally relevant learning rubric and standards as well as the spiral curriculum tools developed through the Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative.
  • Build a team to implement the place-based education plan developed at the Summer Institute.
  • Receive follow-up technical assistance and resources to ensure that the curriculum and pedagogy reforms designed during the Institute are realized over time.

Practice Pedagogy of Place and Connect
Learning to Community and Culture

While there is a seemingly endless supply of reform trends upon which educators may draw, the School-Community Leadership Consortium recommends that schools with a significant number of American Indian and Alaska Native students adopt a place-based approach. Place-based education practice includes a primary focus on consistent and comprehensive use of cultural curriculum and pedagogy and leverages the continuing tribal priority on community development. Further, because students and community members work together to create content and define its value and meaning, place-based practice prompts teachers, administrators, parents, and community leaders to re-examine the relationship between mainstream standards and traditional knowledge.

Directors Ted Wright, Rob Wang, and Ray Barnhardt organized the School-Community Leadership Consortium in 2006 to serve as a clearinghouse for place-based education resources and to extend the exceptional school change model developed through the Alaska Rural Systemic Initiative. The Consortium is housed at Antioch University Seattle. These workshops are the first in a series to be held every summer.

Please join us in Sitka, AK June 26-28 ~ Juneau , AK July 19-21 ~ or Seattle, WA August 9-11 (CANCELED) for one of three summer sessions:
