About the series
This series of five short webinars for educators is designed to help you create a collaborative classroom picture book that connects the themes For Our Elders and Be a Voice for Generations. Led by Jenny Atkinson, Littlescribe Founder and CEO, with guest presenters Kylie Captain (first session) and Jasmine Seymour (third session), the workshops will cover strategies for incorporating Indigenous language into picture books, as well as tips for creating a well-designed collaborative book. By the end of the series, you’ll have the know-how and tools to create a picture book with your students that celebrates Indigenous culture and language. The program is designed to be completed in three lessons.
