BC TEAL has a variety of upcoming events as part of their English Additional Language (EAL) Week. These events take place online and are free for all to attend. We would like to highlight two events that have an OSE connection.
Using Indigenous Storytelling to Re-Story Your Classroom
Nov. 23 | 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Desiree Marshall-Peer, Lecturer
Indigenous Storytelling is a pedagogical stance that has been used for millennia. Each story is layered and contextual. Learning is embedded in memory, history and story. Using story as a basis to approach cross curricular learning allows students to relax into the learning while leaning into the topic at hand. This allows teachers to re-tell the story of their classroom and the learning that is occurring. Together we will use traditional stories to explore learning opportunities across subjects and how they in turn create storied opportunities for our student’s understanding.
