(Note: As of Jan. 7, the workshop is full. If you'd like to be placed on a waitlist, please send your name, school, phone number and email address to educationprograms@freedomforum.org.)

The free professional development workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET at the Newseum on:

  • Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019

The six-hour workshop includes breakfast, lunch, classroom materials, a curatorial session and extensive professional development. NewseumED welcomes teachers seeking new ways to elevate their students’ media literacy and empower their free expression.  Using the phenomenon of fake news, attendees will explore the complexities of how information is created, spread and consumed, and be given tools to help students spot problem stories. Throughout the workshop, primary sources and case studies will be used to bring these issues to life while participants will explore strategies on how to help students use technology to discern misinformation.

Registration is required, and space is limited.

ACCESSIBILITY QUESTIONS? Assistance (e.g. ASL interpretation, assistive listening, description) for professional development workshops can be arranged with at least seven business days’ notice. Please contact AccessUs at AccessUs@newseum.org or by calling 202/292-6453.
