Activity: Participating in or organising an event types › Professional Development and Training
Michelle Keown and Shari Sabeti carried out continuing professional development (CPD) seminars for teachers at Central Middle School in Honolulu.
These training sessions were aimed at upskilling teachers in innovative pedagogical approaches to improving children's literacy and skills in artistic expression and interpretation. Shari Sabeti gave a presentation on using Graphic Novels in Schools and interviewed several CMS teachers.
The workshop entailed a full day of events (led by PI Dr Keown, Co-I Dr Sabeti, and Marshallese performance poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner), focused around the teaching of creative writing. Participants comprised a core of 30 trainee schoolteachers, with additional places made available to in-post RMI schoolteachers.
