Join Christopher Spinale, Val McVey and Steve Masyada, all of the Lou Frey Institute and Share My Lesson for a conversation on virtual resources for civics and current events.
Available on Demand
Some of the most difficult classroom topics for educators to address are current events. How do we approach this news in a way that connects to our content while also allowing opportunities for both discussion and engagement?
This webinar will share virtual resources that can be used to address current events through a civics lens. The Lou Frey Institute will discuss its weekly Civics in Real Life series, which uses civics concepts to explore current events in a one-page, student-friendly, image-rich text. This includes hyperlinks to related content and a closing activity that encourages reflection and engagement.
The webinar session will discuss ways in which this resource can be integrated into both face-to-face and virtual instruction while also discussing the use of the free Civics360 content platform as a means of building foundational knowledge through a virtual resource.
Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.
On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.
