The Value of Listening
Primary School, Years 1—3
Why is it so important to cherish and sustain Australia’s Indigenous cultures? Join talented storyteller Gregg Dreise for an entertaining session on the importance of understanding culture and connecting to and honouring heritage.
Gregg uses music, performance, and art to share the value of storytelling, reveals what we can gain by actively listening to stories and communities different to our own, and demonstrates how by doing this, the world becomes a better place.
This resource was created to accompany the MWF Schools’ Program. It is theme-based, and teachers/students do not need to have read the author’s book, My Culture and Me, to engage with it. The prompts and questions are deliberately general in nature so that it may be used in classrooms across year levels and cohorts.
