What are really “best practices” for educating Native American students? Does what works for mainstream schools and students from other cultures and communities work for Native American students? The results of pilot work conducted among cohorts of Diné teachers would indicate that the answer is no or not always. However, this work concerns only one tribal nation and should not be universally applied. In order to avoid the “one size fits all” approach to teaching, we need to hear from many educators serving multiple Native communities. In this session, we will explore what works best for educating Native American students. Teachers who are successful in improving achievement outcomes for Native Americans will engage in dialogue with teachers who may be struggling. Parents and students are also invited to weigh in on this subject. It is the goal of the Tri-State Alliance of Arizona, Nevada, and Utah in collaboration with WestEd to develop a guidance document and resources for pre-service and veteran educators to be successful with their indigenous students by the year 2020. Be a part of this first important session in a three-year study to support this goal.
