Improving the Pipeline for Rural and American Indian Students Entering Comput...

NSF Awards: 1657553

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

In 1972, Montana Indian education in K-12 became mandated by Article X, Section 1(2) of the state constitution, known as Indian Education for All (IEFA).   Montana was the first state to require Indian education by law.  Building off of these teaching requirements, the Storytelling project is uniting the American Indian tradition of storytelling with the increased importance of teaching computational skills.  In particular, we are developing lesson plans and materials that use storytelling as a culturally responsive way to engage Montana students in developing their computational skills, while providing teachers with a means of covering both content standards and IEFA Essential Understandings. Through developing middle school lesson plans across the curriculum, we are empowering teachers to integrate computer science and computing skills, which will help students understand that computing skills are relevant across disciplines and are important for a wide variety of professions in the work-force.
