The power of one word lessons and why it's important to know how to ask questions. Cree Simon will present how one word in the Cree language can be a spark of conversation, learning and a great motivational set for classroom lessons. The presentation will also examine common questions often asked of fluent speakers and why it's important to be mindful of what we are asking, who we are asking and sometimes why it's important when we are asking.
