Story and the Landscapes of Learning brings together educators who are committed to teaching practices that respect nd engage diverse learners. This year we feature sessions focusing on inquiry, diverse texts, indigenous perspectives, the new curriculum and stories of place and learning.
Featuring: Richard Wagamese, David J. Smith, Faye Brownlie, Sharon Jeroski, Leyton Schnellert, Carl Leggo, Dale Allender and many more!
How does place shape us? What does it mean for our practice? What kinds of learning experiences do we owe our students so they can see themselves in the world? How can we help them write about their own sense of home and identity?
Powerful stories are located in our personal and social geographies. Our stories are shaped by our geographies, and our individual and shared experiences. Come explore the role of place in informing our stories, our literacies and our practice.
Join us in Richmond, BC, October 23, 2015 for BCTELA Annual Conference “Story and the Landscapes of Learning.” We invite you to submit a conference proposal that explores some of the many dimensions of story as the landscape of learning and knowing–story as literary and informational text, story as cross-disciplinary collaborations, story as multiple literacies and genres, story as memory and identity, story as teacher knowledge and research, story as community and culture, story as marginalization, and story as resistance.
