If not, we should be! I believe we are getting there, but have a long way to go. I went to a terrific PD yesterday with resources! This was so important and something I realized we need to collect, put into a place for all to use and generate some ideas on how to use it in our everyday teaching and learning- not just a stand alone topic!
I think the big question at every department meeting should be “what are you doing in the next few weeks to include in your teaching that involves being Asian Literate across Literacy and Numeracy.
I believe in Picture books for all ages- they get kids in and the learning is endless. We have some great resources at our school, but they’re not that easy to find if you don’t know what you’re looking for. I’d love to find them and make an Asian Studies section at our school. What do you think?
In the meantime, have a look at the link below- its all things Asian Literacy, in one place! Check it out!
