About this event
This is the third in a series of 10 webinars in 2020 by learning stories luminary, Wendy Lee from New Zealand. Each webinar will cover a chapter in the inspiring new book, co-written with Margaret Carr, called Learning Stories in Practice.
"We will listen to Jason’s helicopter stories and offer our own in exchange. In this evolving classroom drama every revelation is necessary and equally important, for our goal is more than fantasy. It is fairness."(Vivian Gussin Paley, 1990: xii)
This webinar will cover:
Plus a teacher question: Is there a key feature of Learning Stories assessments that tests can’t do?
The seminal work on Learning Stories by Professor Margaret Carr was first published by SAGE in 2001. That widely acclaimed approach to assessment has since gained a huge international following. A second book by Margaret and Wendy “Learning Stories: Constructing Learner Identities in the Early Years” was published by SAGE in 2012.
Margaret and Wendy's new book, "Learning Stories in Practice," features a variety of examples of real-life learning stories from around the world. It provides clear, practical advice on how to initiate and create learning stories and why they are valuable. The authors show readers how to write stories that capture the excitement of each young child’s journey through the early years and how to develop a deep professional understanding of the learning that takes place during this time in their lives. You can buy the book here.
