This workshop will expose participants to diverse literary genres by Indigenous authors presented in various formats (i.e. audio, film, etc.), and will propose ways in which such works can be used in the classroom to develop awareness of Indigenous ways of being and knowing. Through practical examples, participants will be better informed about the relevance of the written word in contemporary settings and contexts, and appreciate them vis-à-vis other forms of Indigenous literary representations.
This workshop is focussed on supporting elementary and middle school teachers.
