Short Session Description: An introduction to attending to and honouring students' narratives as a curriculum of lives.
Full Session Description: Students’ lives are filled with stories. Educators’ lives are filled with stories. These stories must be made visible in school spaces. Attending to students’ narratives is complex and messy work. This session begins to explore the methodology of how educators might come to honour students’ narratives in educational spaces. Honouring students’ narratives helps to honour our shared curriculum of lives.
