Responding to Place Through Storywork and Experiential Learning
Students are natural storytellers; they have an innate ability to explore the world through their senses and commit ideas, knowledge, and understanding to memory through story. In this workshop, teachers will develop their capacity for place-responsive learning, and the use of narrative as a classroom tool for teaching, learning, and assessment. We will also weave the use of geographical and historical thinking skills with an appreciation for Indigenous ways of knowing, diverse access points for curricular content, and activation of pedagogies. We anticipate being outdoors for this session.
