Engage Your Students in Science Through Their Astronomical Heritage!
Multicultural Astronomy in the Classroom
Saturday, January 12, 2013; 9:00am – 3:00pm
College of San Mateo Astronomy Department and Planetarium
So often the teaching of astronomy ignores or sidesteps the contributions of non-European and non-U.S. cultures. Few educators receive much training in this area and often stick to what they know best, even when an increasing number of their students are from cultures beyond those familiar to them. In this workshop, explore activities and resources about the astronomical heritage of cultures from around the world, and learn some techniques to engage your students with diverse cultural backgrounds.
Target Audience: 3rd – 9th grade teachers; interested educators of all grade levels
Cost: $20 (includes lunch)
