About This Webinar

Join The New York Times Learning Network and Share My Lesson for a fun webinar on teaching critical thinking with images and videos.

In this webinar, Katherine Schulten and Michael Gonchar, editors of The New York Times Learning Network, introduce some quick ways any teacher can find and use Times visual content to enliven their curriculum, help students practice literacy skills, and encourage connections between the classroom and the world.

Whether using an interactive infographic to make history personal; a 3-minute science video to illustrate a concept; a mysterious photograph to teach the skill of finding evidence; or an editorial cartoon as a writing prompt, there are myriad ways that the vast visual offerings of can complement almost any curriculum.

Ms. Schulten and Mr. Gonchar will introduce you to free Learning Network features like What’s Going On in This Picture, Film Club and Picture Prompts, but they will also show you how to find your own materials to engage learners of all kinds.

Great webinar. So much useful information and resources. Presenters were terrific. It easily could have been twice as long with everything they covered.
