Literacy and Narrative in the Early Years: Zooming in and Zooming Out
ELP Lecture Series 2019 – August Lecture – 7–9pm.
Presented by teachers from Roskill South Kindergarten.
For many years we have valued children’s portfolios as a powerful literacy artefact, and have noticed how Learning Stories have provided a meaningful tool for revisiting, informing learning, and increasing children’s oral competency. This sparked our curiosity and we have been exploring how we can foster and strengthen children’s oral literacy experiences through the realm of storytelling.
Recently we have been involved in a TRLI project, working alongside Margaret Carr and Amanda Bateman, exploring what a patchwork of storytelling looks like in our kindergarten. This lecture will share how a richly resourced environment, along with responsive pedagogical practices strengthens children’s storytelling expertise.
