Due to concerns and precautions related to the COVID-19 virus, the Faculty Council HawkTalk presentations will be made available via Zoom only.
Please consider joining us virtually for our first presentation of the Spring 2021 semester scheduled for Wednesday, January 27 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM. (CST)
Our first presentation of the semester features NSU faculty Dr. Iain Anderson, Professor and Chair of History, and Dr. Farina King, Assistant Professor of History in the College of Liberal Arts; and Dr. Chris Clark, Assistant Professor in the department of Teaching, Leadership, and Professional Practice at the University of North Dakota.
The title of their presentation is: Refocusing on Indigenous History in Schools
Drs. Iain Anderson, Chris Clark, and Farina King will highlight their work and development of the Indigenous History and Literacy Project (IHLP). This project brings professional development in social studies pedagogy to 4-12 grade educators interested in building active learning history lessons, improving reading comprehension, and developing resources that speak to the Native American identities of their students and region. It has expanded and delivered learning resources and workshops for teachers and students from across northeastern Oklahoma. The current project seeks to observe and assess how cooperating high school educators in Oklahoma teach IHLP lesson plans and evaluate the work produced by their students.
