Conversation VII - X is for Elsa and O is for Anna: Letters That Tell Stories
Date: November 28th, 2023
Time: 6:30pm – 7:30pm PST
Join ECPN Pedagogist Maria Jeong in conversation with ECPN Director Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw and ECPN Pedagogical Coordinator Meagan Montpetit as they discuss a pedagogical project that reimagines children’s writing as a social practice. This conversation will share what might be possible when we, as adults, take children’s writing practices seriously by noticing how letters hold special significance for them in collectively storying their world.
