Hilltop Educator Institute Presents:
Learning Stories with Wendy Lee
Saturday, May 13th
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Facilitated by Wendy Lee
More than just a tool or a format, Learning Stories are part of a philosophy for pedagogy and assessment, with a huge international following. Grounded in socio-cultural theory and formative assessment, the Learning Story approach honors the child, family, teacher and community. Using Learning Stories, educators can write from the heart, in a way that engages children and families, while also integrating required assessment indicators. Learning Stories help educators integrate previous experiences, outline new opportunities and possibilities, and bring their focus to delighting in children and participating in their learning.
At this workshop, participants will gain understanding of the philosophy and key elements of the Learning Story Approach, explore many uses of Learning Stories, and practice analyzing stories that enhance child, family and educator identity. Working in small groups throughout the day, participants will have the opportunity for facilitated conversations to explore the implications of Wendy's workshop for their own setting. Wendy will also share how Learning Stories can provide robust, documented evidence of teaching and learning outcomes in an interesting and accessible way, while providing effective accountability.
Wendy Lee is Director of the Educational Leadership Project in Aotearoa, New Zealand, where she helped establish Learning Stories as a national approach to assessment as part of the Te Whariki Curriculum Framework. Wendy is co-author of several books, including Learning Stories. Constructing Learner Identities in Early Education, and Understanding the Te Whariki Approach. Early Years Education in Practice.
