Creating New Learning Opportunities

Instead of writing a term paper, University of Northern British Columbia student Sharon Brewer was able to tell stories and paint with children at Immaculate Conception School in Prince George.

Brewer was one of four students in Global and International Studies 298: Globalization and Religion who chose an alternate assignment to the traditional paper this semester. Instead, they researched Aboriginal creation stories and developed an interactive presentation for children in Grades 3 to 5.
