Teaching through Culture is a Value-Added Key Piece for Engaging ALL Students


Lessons Learned: Alaska Statewide Mentor Project (ASMP) has been serving early career teachers, districts, and Alaska students across the state for nearly two decades. Research has shown that an essential piece to success, especially when teaching in diverse schools, is to teach through culture. ASMP uses the five Alaska Cultural Standards as a guide for this work, and we want to share the lessons we have learned for what works, what doesn’t, and suggest proposed next steps so that Teaching Through Culture becomes the norm, not the exception.
