Aboriginal Literacy and Numeracy
2 April @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In this 3-hour workshop, we discuss traditional methods of storytelling and discuss the appropriateness of Dreamtime stories and examine alternative examples of children’s books and puppets that include Aboriginal perspectives in line with the current interests of the children.
This workshop also provides an introduction to the Aboriginal languages, how they are structured and practical examples and strategies of how educators can include Aboriginal language in their program.
This workshop will also have a range of play experiences that embody literacy and numeracy concepts.
