Learning Through Play | January 14-22, 2020

Students will explore the nature and development of play in the lives of children from birth to twelve years of age. Students will learn how to research, plan, organize and prepare meaningful play experiences to enhance the growth of individual children. Through active exploration with suitable play materials, students will gain a personal appreciation of the functions of play and of their role as adult facilitators in that process.

Exceptional Individuals | January 18 2020

Students consider the exceptional child, first with respect to the child’s basic needs as an individual and, second, as the exceptionality influences his/her development and behaviour. Exceptionality is considered within the context of the family. Attention is focused on the most inclusive environment in which the child's personal and educational needs can be met. This course is an introduction to exceptionality and is not intended to train specialists in the field.

Gwich'in 1 is a beginner's level course that gets learners to a vocabulary of over 500 words, with accompanying sentences. We learn in an interactive classroom setting using games and activities. Gwich'in Googwandak puts our new vocabulary into sentences using traditional Gwich'in stories. Learners will now have a vocabulary of over 1,000 words.
