Lessons are Authentic

LKSD Best Practice #13

When lessons are interesting, meaningful, culturally relevant, and relate to real-life (authentic), students are given the opportunity to apply the content and make their own connections.   

Teacher Shout-Out:
Alice Fitka, Tuntutuliak

Teacher Alice helps a Yugtun Language Arts story come to life through this engaging and meaningful lesson. After reading the story in the Yugtun Anthology book (Best Practice #6), her students made their own "pancake" and re-enacted the story. Further, both Alice and her students stayed in the language of instruction through the entire activity (Best Practice #11).
