An Essential Tool for K-12 Science Teachers of Indigenous Students

Scientists and science educators are beginning to recognize the importance and place of traditional Indigenous knowledge in our understanding of the natural world. In Bridging Cultures, Glen Aikenhead and Herman Michell validate the role of traditional knowledge in the school science curriculum.

Science teachers and teacher candidates will find it a fascinating and informative book, sure to impact their teaching, regardless of the makeup of their student bodies. And, it should be considered an essential tool for teachers of Indigenous students whose identities and worldviews have rarely been recognized in our school systems, particularly in the science classroom.
