Abstract: To take up equity concerns seriously in teaching and learning STEM, the ways in which teaching and learning are historicized and relational activities need to be considered. The construct of rightful presence – and the co-constructed “making present” practices which give rise to moments of rightful presence – is one way to consider more systemically how to make sense of the historicized and relational nature of teaching and learning. Our study shows how integrating the equity-oriented design approach, community ethnography as pedagogy, as a part of teaching and learning STEM, supports the emergences of making present practices: modeling ethnographic data, re-performing injustices towards understanding and solidarity, and making change dynamic and visible in classroom work. These practices and their implications are described using ethnographic data from 6 urban middle school classrooms in two states during a STEM unit focused on engineering for sustainable communities.
