2019 Seminar Enrollment: Storytelling Traditions of South Asia and the Middle East
In 2019, I was part of the Story-telling from South Asia and the Middle East seminar. I learned a lot from this very engaging seminar. The following are a few of the things I learned:
1. Many great teachers across the Philadelphia School District face many challenges, but they recognize that our students have personal stories and thus should be nurtured as individuals.
2. Many communities tell old stories that are passed on from generation to generation, but what is old can become new again!
3. I also learned that I can depend on my colleagues to navigate some things I may not know or things I’m not good at.
Overall, I’m excited to implement my unit in the coming academic year!
