Talk to Children Like People: Seeking Equity
Through Language Rich Classrooms
Facilitated by Michael Gramling
Hosted by Hilltop Children's Centre
Language empowers us to communicate, to teach, to encourage, and to advocate for equity and justice. Because reading and writing are seen as critical success in school and life, the emphasis on enhancing language skills in early childhood classrooms has focused more on teaching phonetics than on the natural, conversational interactions that children most need.
Conceptual Artist Ana Vojnovic offers workshops for both adults and children. See more at her website Concept Fioka here.
