In partnership with Annenberg Learner, the Newseum is excited to offer a FREE three-day institute July 16-18, 2014, that focuses on new media, the First Amendment and social change. While we have selected teachers for onsite participation, we invite all educators to join us virtually through social media. The institute will feature professional development workshops, curatorial sessions, primary source analysis and collaborative lesson planning.
“Speaking of Change” Institute Description
How has freedom of speech been used to spark movements for social change? What techniques have been effective for catalyzing action and securing the historical record? How can you apply these lessons from history to help your students effectively advocate using today’s high- and low-tech tools? Explore the power of freedom of speech and help your students communicate effectively in traditional and new media.
Annenberg Learner is the exclusive sponsor of the 2014 Summer Teacher Institute.
