Hilltop's Institute Educator Discussion Series Presents:
Reading and Writing the World:
Cultivating a Literacy of Place
Wednesday, March 8th
Facilitated by Ann Pelo



We are sorry to announce this event has been cancelled. Please email institute@hilltopcc.org with any questions.



Stories are elemental and essential for us humans. Stories tell us who we are, and where we are, and why we are. Stories of place locate us in the larger-than-human world, allowing us to know the land, the sky, the water, and to contextualize ourselves there, alongside the other creatures bound into them.  

To tell stories of place with children and families, we need a place literacy, the ability to read the beyond-human world. We need to be literate in the varying shapes of leaf and blossom, in the seasonal moods of the grasses and wild weeds, in the distinct caresses of drizzle and downpour. During our evening, well consider how we develop a literacy of place, and how we invite children and families to do the same.

Ann is a teacher educator, program consultant, and author whose primary work focuses on pedagogical practice, social justice and ecological teaching and learning, and the art of mentoring. Ann is the author of five books, most recently The Goodness of Rain: Developing an Ecological Identity in Young Children (2013). Ann was a teacher and mentor teacher at Hilltop for 17 years. She's deep into work on her next book, with a focus on pedagogical leadership.
