Description

Michelle Keown and Shari Sabeti organised a campus workshop on arts education and creative writing at the University of the South Pacific, aimed at Marshellese practising and trainee schoolteachers.

Michelle's keynote presentation was titled 'Waves of Destruction: Nuclear Imperialismand Anti-nuclear Protest in the Indigenous Literatures of the Pacific'.
During the workshop, teachers were asked to engage with the following questions:
• How informed are the students you teach about their own country, its traditions and culture? How much do they know about what life is like for Marshall Islanders who have migrated?

• What kinds of teaching resources do you have/use that are focused on the cultural heritage of the Marshall Islands, or on migration of Marshall Islanders?

• What kinds of resources do you need to improve your students’ understanding and knowledge of these things?

• What would make a good/useful resource?
