Event Registration
Event Description
Join author and EAL instructor Mary Bertucci in this session that delves into her newly published resource A Powwow Story. This friendly and open workshop will give participants some practical ideas about how to incorporate this reading resource with Indigenous content into their curriculum. Learn about the motivation for writing this story and the collaboration that brought it to life. For those who may be a little apprehensive, there will be some suggestions to help instructors feel more comfortable teaching with this resource. The workshop portion of the session will give participants time to brainstorm possible activities to use with the story in different types of classes (LINC, EAP, integrated skills). Some sample resources for LINC and more general EAL classes will also be provided. A question-and-answer period will follow the workshop. All are welcome!
