The workshop was well attended with school librarians, ESL teachers and related educators who were interested in learning more about the Indian culture to enhance and fosters a diverse curriculum. One of the largest democracies in the world, the participants got to know India and its rich culture. The session took participants on a journey through India, its food, religions, and clothing, and introduce two major Indian festivals: Holi and Diwali.
This session was a mixture of lecture style presentation and interactive activities. We sampled some Indian food, previewed Indian children’s books, tried on clothing and learned a few dance moves.
