Title Yuraq: An Introduction to Writing
Description:University of Alaska Fairbanks master's thesis.
Teacher research conducted at Ayaprun Elitnaurvik Charter School in Bethel, Alaska introduced 18 kindergarten students to writing through Yuraq (Eskimo dancing). Within the teacher research, the case study followed four emergent writers as they developed in their writing abilities, how they connected Yuraq with writing, and their progression through their second language skills. The study followed two stories: the teacher’s story and the students’ story. The study found that Yuraq aided in writing instruction to second language learners, that there are aspects of the 6+1 Traits in Yuraq, and that students progressed in their L2 as well.
