Learning with Molly Of Denali
Professional Development Workshop for Current TGH Trainers

Who is this training for?

This professional development workshop is specifically for certified TGH trainers running TGH Early Childhood and TGH School courses for kids who are 4-8 years old.


About Molly of Denali:

Molly of Denali is an animated PBS KIDS series that follows the adventures of feisty and resourceful Molly Mabray, a 10-year-old Alaska Native girl. Molly of Denali is the first nationally distributed children’s series in the U.S. to feature an Alaska Native lead character. Molly of Denali is designed to help kids ages 4-8 develop informational text knowledge and skills, while also highlighting traditional Alaska Native values. In each episode, Molly’s life and adventures are enhanced, illuminated and broadened by using and creating a variety of informational texts (including books, online resources, field guides, historical archives, Indigenous knowledge passed down by Elders, maps, charts, posters, photos and more). In Molly’s world, community members engage in traditional arts and crafts as well as time-honored hunting and fishing methods. At the same time, characters in Molly’s world also use the internet, smart tablets, laptops, cell phones and other everyday conveniences of modern life.


Molly of Denali is a multimedia project.
It includes animated stories, live-action videos, digital games and hands-on activities that support children in using informational texts to solve real-world problems, accomplish tasks, meet their needs and wants, satisfy their curiosity and teach others.


This workshop will prepare TGH trainers to:

  • integrate Molly of Denali video content and digital games to complement learning through hands-on, real-world experiences
  • model for families how everyday interactions, including a variety of media and collaborative activities, can work in concert to support learning and foster engagement

The learning focus is about literacy and informational text—text whose main purpose is to convey information.

The Molly of Denali curriculum fosters learning goals for informational text through:
  • Active video viewing and discussions
  • Collaborative, hands on activities
  • Engagement with, and creation of, a variety of informational texts
  • Digital game play
