Teachers’ Domain: Engaging Alaska Natives with the Geosciences collection aims to increase Alaska Natives’ exposure to and involvement with geoscience-related issues that are directly relevant to their lives. CCT will conduct the evaluation of the collection to examine the ways in which teachers are accessing and using the media materials and the impact on both native and non-native Alaskan high school students. The evaluation will seek to identify the extent to which the resources in the collection support teachers’ content knowledge, ability to present content through native knowledge perspectives, and promotes career opportunities for Alaskan Native students in the geosciences.
