Teaching Cayuga

Program Description

This course provides candidates with practical experience in developing teaching strategies in Cayuga conversational and written language education. Candidates participate in simulations, workshops, and interpersonal learning to learn techniques in experiential education, critical pedagogy, and critically reflective assessment and evaluation for use in the Indigenous language classroom. The candidate’s prior learning and experiences positively affect the course environment for mentorship, team learning, collaborative inquiry, and independent study. The Teaching Cayuga AQ provides relevant, meaningful, and practical experience for candidates in reading, writing, reflection, dialogue, and expression. Candidates complete the AQ with an independent study collaboratively designed with the instructor that involves an interview, translation or transcription, and final preparation of a narrative written in accepted Cayuga diacritic and orthographic forms.
