As events across the nation raise our consciousness about the continued fight for equality among all people, educators, in particular, want to help students have a voice in their society.
If you’re interested in helping your students participate in meaningful social justice projects, mark your calendars for a PBS Webinar called “Illuminating Social Justice Issues Through Authentic Student Projects” on February 25, 2016 at 7:00 PM EST.
Here is a quick description of the webinar from the website:
Michael Hernandez will be leading the discussion of how teachers of all grade levels can design meaningful social justice projects. Michael will showcase project examples for a range of grade levels and share insight into their pedagogical significance. Teachers will walk away with strategies to support real-world connections and authentic learning opportunities for students to understand the importance of social justice.
