This session will cover the benefits of the routines of Mapping, Walking, and Sit Spots for all learners in support of cross curricular learning, place led pedagogy, and in the spirit of reciprocity and reconciliation, attempting wholeheartedly to consider Indigenous perspectives in all aspects of planning for these routines. I will also briefly touch personally on how I value this type of work for the consideration of teacher wellness, particularly during a pandemic. Sample texts and activities in support of this type of work will also be highlighted in our time together.
This session is full.
