February 7 - : "Allow Them To ‘Re-Introduce’ Themselves: An Examination of the Influence of Narrative-Based Activities Within An After-School Setting" Presented by Professor Caroline Collins, LCM Lecturer
It can be argued that language is one of humanity’s most powerful tools and those who wield its power can shape trajectories and worldviews. This workshop will analyze the cultural influence of language, and of narrative in particular. Specifically, this workshop will highlight the ways in which narrative-based activities can "give voice" to historically marginalized groups and individuals and act as an artifact that allows them to “re-present” their individual and collective identities and counteract conventional depictions through story.

Fall 2013 Workshops
October 18 - "A Transworld Pedagogy: from Cultural Relevance to Interculturality" Presented by Dr. Vásquez, LCM Principal Investigator
This workshop will highlight the movement between cultural relevance and interculturality in our research. I view interculturality as a 21st competency and highlight how knowledge and action between two worlds is important in today's interconnected world where individuals commonly transcend multiple worlds without leasing their footing in the native culture. At the same time they negotiate the outside world.
December 6 - "Story telling for the social and academic advancement of young children " Presented by Dr. Wishard-Guerra, MCM Principal Investigator
Story telling is a culturally relevant and academically rigorous approach to supporting social, emotional and academic development among children. This workshop focuses on the importance of story telling with young children as a means to promote both social and emotional well being as well as to develop oral language and literacy skills. An overview on the developmental importance of narrative development will be followed by concrete strategies to support children’s own story telling, to engage in collaborative co-narrations, and to use purposeful, strategic conversations to build vocabulary.
