Adrienne Gear: Weaving Indigenous Ways of Knowing into Your Reading & Writing Program

In this after-school workshop, Vancouver teacher and author Adrienne Gear will share different ways she has been integrating Indigenous stories, culture and beliefs into her reading and writing program. Adrienne will share a variety of lessons, both fiction and non-fiction, which integrate Indigenous story, knowledge and beliefs. She will share a story writing unit, based on traditional indigenous tales, as well as different forms of nonfiction writing including Comparison, Description and Instruction. As always, Adrienne will share mini lessons, great anchor books and student samples. Come to this workshop and leave with ideas you can use in your classroom on Monday!
