Fall 2017, New Mexico Navajo Nation What’s in a Story (WIS) program.
TSP facilitator Amy Becenti recently returned from Navajo Nation. For the past 3-1/2 years, Amy has been taking the TSP What’s in a Story, a wellness, literacy and historic identity program into the classrooms of elementary schools and early childhood centers in Gallup-Mckinley and San Juan Counties, New Mexico. WIS now reaches over 1200 school children annually. Here is what a teacher at Naschitti Elementary School had to say
It was great to see all the exercise incorporated into the stories. The hand movements, sign language, rhythm, etc. help students get into the stories and retain details. It’s wonderful to see the joy come back to reading and storytelling through this program.
