Join us on June 29th!
Are you tired of hearing Toronto is the most diverse city in the world, only to be bombarded with the same voices, ideas and flavour of news and commentary on every website, newspaper, TV channel and radio station. It's boring, right? This month, we want real talk stories about multiculturalism in the GTA, thirty years to six months after Trudeau.
Raconteurs Storytelling & The Ethnic Aisle are joining together to present an evening of storytelling along this mandate: true, personal stories told live on stage exploring multiculturalism and identity in this city.
The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program is a group experience for parents and their babies and young children focusing on the pleasure and power of using oral and through the air rhymes, songs, and stories together.
Teacher Training Workshop covers:
· Philosophy and Objectives of the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program.
· The Material of the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program, including:
Rhymes - many examples of interactive rhymes; how they fit into the program, how to use interactive rhymes and, how to teach them to parents.
Songs - learn lullabies and dancing songs; when to use them and how to teach them to parents.
Storytelling – why it’s an essential part of the program; how to learn and tell a story, and enjoy it!
· The Logistics of how to run a Parent-Child Mother Goose Program - from setting up a group, to putting out the mats, to saying goodbye.
The Cost of the Workshop includes:
· P-CMGP Teacher Training Manual
· Rhymes and Songs booklet
· P-CMGP Forms booklet and other resources
A variety of additional resources will be available for sale at the workshop.
