About this Episode

This week we talk about culturally relevant science teaching and what that means in terms of connecting to local community issues. We talk about the nature of being responsive as a science teacher and having learning opportunities be connected to local community issues is not a requirement for doing culturally relevant teaching. How do you think about creating curiousity and relevance by building on students' thinking and reasoning when they draw on their own experience and culture.
