Indigenous Pedagogy for Writing Instruction: Experiential Writing

Hosted by STFPL

Join us for an interactive workshop designed for educators seeking innovative approaches to writing instruction through Indigenous learning strategies. Award-winning Métis author, Arnolda Dufour Bowes, leads this engaging session focusing on the powerful pedagogy of hands-on experiential learning and how we can use it within our writing classrooms. This workshop will begin at the Allen Sapp Gallery. Through experiencing Arnolda’s multi-sensory art installation hosted at the gallery the workshop also delves into the historical context of how the Road Allowance Métis became marginalized and landless, offering a lens through which participants can explore and apply these insights to experiential writing instruction. Participants will not only gain an understanding of this history but will also leave with an educator toolkit of an activity developed by Arnolda containing all materials necessary for immediate application in the classroom.

Participants will:

  • Expand knowledge and understanding of Indigenous learning strategies, particularly the hands-on experiential learning approach as it applies to writing instruction.
  • Deepen understanding of the challenges faced by Métis Road Allowance people and the broader implications of their dispossession and marginalization.
  • Gain an educator toolkit, featuring an experiential learning game to promote a culturally responsive educational experience for students.
