The Local Learning program celebrated throughout New York State is coming to Schenectady!
Culture, Community and the Classroom applies in any subject area K-12. This professional learning experience explores culturally responsive, engaged learning through local traditional arts. It introduces concepts of cultural identity and opportunities to practice ethnographic research skills such as interviewing, note taking, and sketching. Additionally, educators will gain a wider perspective of their own cultural identity and models for their students to explore their cultural identity authentically. Wondering how one’s knowledge of their cultural identity influences their learning? Join us! Register for and read more about this vital program here.
