Culturally Responsive Education Conference

  • Juneau-Douglas High School 1639 Glacier Avenue Juneau, AK, 99801 United States (map)

Sealaska Heritage Institute will sponsor its second education conference for teachers and administrators in an effort to promote culturally responsive pedagogy in schools. Research has shown the effectiveness of using culture- and place-based teaching resources and methods to improve academic achievement for Indigenous students. Studies over the past three decades have shown that Native language and culturally-responsive programs are associated with improved academic performance, decreased dropout rates and improved school attendance.
