When students connect strongly to what you are teaching, they become motivated to turn assignments into action. If you want to ignite a spark in your students, you won’t want to miss this edWebinar, featuring the News Literacy Project’s ambassadors. They’ll describe how their students have elevated classroom lessons to the next level. You will learn how to inspire your students as well.

During the session, we will also provide instructional resources for integrating these concepts into your classroom, explain the News Literacy Project’s free educator resources, including Checkology®, and introduce you to NewsLit Nation, our virtual professional learning community (PLC) to connect with and be inspired by other educators across the nation.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the middle and high school levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
