Description

The Honoring the Whole Student workbook was made possible by support from the National Science Foundation. The motivation for this workbook is to provide Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) faculty the support and tools needed to reflect on their instructional, mentorship, and teaching practices—individually or within a community of learners.

The goal is for STEM faculty to foster a deeper understanding of how to more dynamically support Native American students. The activities in this workbook are intended to generate conversation and reflection about the challenges faced by, and worldviews of, Native American STEM students.
