Opportunity: Participate in a Summer Writing Project for Educators
Defining Moments Canada is seeking contributors to participate in a collective Summer Writing Project in mid-July of this year. We are hoping to connect with pre-service, newly practicing, and experienced classroom teachers, as well as teaching artists, storytellers, and folks with experience planning and facilitating workshops, and in other informal and community work settings.
In the Summer Writing Project, contributors will engage with historians, artists, storytellers, and educators to co-create a series of learning experiences for The Bryce Report @100: The Story of a National Crime.
Our hope is that these resources will engage learners across Turtle Island with guiding principles of storytelling from multiple perspectives—especially beyond dominant narratives—as inspired by the Mi’kmaq guiding principle of Etuaptmumk, or Two-Eyed Seeing. These resources will explore the intersections of settler and Indigenous learnings and ways of knowing and being.
DMC is committed to justice-oriented hiring and work practices. We welcome applicants of all identities, and are especially eager to welcome Indigenous applicants as well as racialized, 2SLGBTQ+, and disabled folks.
Successful candidates will participate in the Summer Writing Project from July 7 to July 22, 2022. Participants should expect to allot 30 – 40 hours within that time frame and will be compensated with an honorarium as well as hours toward degree requirements or letters of acknowledgment, where applicable.
