When preparing to become a teacher, one must understand the community for which they will be serving. In an effort to help prepare scholars for our future communities, cultural competency trainings were provided for two predominant cultures found in the Four Corners Region: Latinx and Native Americans. Local experts on these two cultures each provided a two-hour professional development session for Noyce faculty and scholars with hands on, active discussions, and interactive activities to become familiar with learning styles, cultural norms, and classroom strategies for effective community building within the classroom. This poster will present information gathered from the two professional development opportunities by presenting some strategies and tips from both the student perspective and the faculty perspective. Come and engage in conversation around engaging activities for Latinx and Native Americans in your classroom.
