For the first time in educational publishing, Teaching Truly offers K–16 teachers course-specific guidelines for indigenizing mainstream education. The goal is to facilitate greater educational integrity and relevance in the classroom now, without waiting for more “ reforms” to policy, standards or curricula in general.
Incorporating reality-based teaching common in traditional Indigenous learning cultures, each chapter first exposes educational hegemony, including that existing within the new “common core standards,” and then offers alternative, time-tested perspectives and exercises to counter and/or counter-balance such hegemony.
Addressing eight common subject areas, the material can be adapted for different grade levels and can be applied to other mainstream courses.
