The Genius of Our Ancestors: Engineering of the Past, Present and Future

Since time immemorial, engineering has been a feat perfected by by the plant and animal relatives throughout our traditional homelands. They served as our teachers in developing tools, structures, and protocols allowing us to thrive then, now, and, with our responsibilities fulfilled, into the future.

Trauma-Informed Hate Response: How to Offer Help to Those Who Have Been a Target of Hate

Talking About Race and Racism: A Developmental and Integrative Approach

Many of us want to feel more confident talking about race and racism, but instead avoid the topic. The fear of saying something incorrect or being uncomfortable can override our good intentions when it comes to these issues. It is common to feel stuck or tense when discussing issues around race, but not fully understand why.

Differing somewhat from traditional diversity workshops, this training emphasizes a developmental and integrative approach (e.g., intercultural and social justice) to learning about these important topics in order to increase comfort and understanding.

A key goal of both the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is to deliver an education that prepares all students for life after high school. This goal is inseparable from the concept of equity and the effort to close the achievement and opportunity gaps.
