Becoming Albertan: Youth Socialization

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This workshop engages participants in a series of drawing and storytelling activities designed to explore their connections to the broader Alberta community. Built around our signature "draw an Alberta" exercise, the session walks teachers through the process we use with youth to better understand how and when they adopt a "wild west" image of Alberta society. The exercise closes with a discussion of how our personal and communal identities are sometimes out of sync, and what we can do to build more equitable and inclusive classrooms, schools, neighborhoods, and communities. We will present findings from our study to date, which help improve the way we teach identity.
