ASTE-Sponsored Session: Balancing Act: Bridging Content Pedagogy with Equity Issues in Methods Courses

This session will bring together science teacher educators to share strategies and resources to support the professional development of preservice middle and high school teachers.

During this workshop, participants will discuss and share ideas, syllabi, digital tools, or lessons about how to teach secondary science teacher preparation methods classes.

This session is for college faculty who prepare teachers or mentor secondary science teachers who work with preservice teachers in clinical experiences.

Takeaways: 1. Perspectives on balancing science content, pedagogical content knowledge, and methods in courses for preservice science teachers; 2. Strategies for addressing issues of social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion in preservice science education courses; and 3. Ideas for adapting these content and practices for face-to-face, hybrid, and online delivery in courses.

Speakers

Ryan Summers (University of North Dakota: Grand Forks, ND), Xinying Yin (California State University, San Bernardino: San Bernardino, CA), Lauren Angelone (Xavier University: Cincinnati, OH), Stephanie Philipp (The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga: Chattanooga, TN)

Bringing Indigenous Ways of Knowing into Place-Based STEM Projects

Explore with Indigenous Knowledge Keepers how and why to include Indigenous Ways of Knowing and voices in your place-based STEM projects.

Takeaways: With guidance from an Indigenous Knowledge Keeper: 1. gather examples of, and reasons for, looking at NGSS PEs, DCIs, SEPs, and CCCs through the complementary lens of Indigenous Ways of Knowing, which we call Indigenizing STEM; 2. create an ancestral land acknowledgement statement, with instructions, that can be used at your school, organization, or project site; and 3. create an honoring (blessing) protocol from the Indigenous perspective that acknowledges the respected human-environment relationship. This protocol could be done on the land of STEM project before changing or taking from the ecosystem.
