Morning Workshop: Culturally Focused Curriculum

Learn to develop and implement culturally focused curriculum and resources that draw upon local First Nations cultures. Locally developed curriculum relies on input from parents and community members and is accepted and used more meaningfully by caregivers and child care centres.

Afternoon Workshop: Teaching Emotional Literacy to Children

The strong development of social and emotional skills in children is one of the best predictors of academic and life-long success. In this age of technology children spend less time in face-to-face interactions which has an effect on their ability to develop critical emotional literacy skills. In this interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to a wealth of children’s literature that can be used as a jumping-off point for teaching Emotional Literacy. Together we will brainstorm and share ideas for expanding emotional content found in books, stories or legends and come up with ways to extend that teaching to other aspects of your program. Participants will leave with a book list and the generated ideas of how to get started right away.
