The training day focuses on using picture books and storytellingin early language education and is aimed at students and kindergarten andprimary schoolteachers from Trentino-South Tyrol.

English will be used as a lingua franca throughout the event, with a translanguaging approach in the workshops to facilitate understanding for all participating teachers.

In her keynote address, Sandie Mourão will explore the use of picture books for intercultural education, reading aloud techniques, and scaffolding strategies to support the comprehension of L2 learners. She will then demonstrate these practices in a live read-aloud in English with a group of local school children.

A series of workshops led by unibz professors will further address the theme of intercultural education with Ladin, Italian, and German language picture books in early learning.
