We’ll travel anywhere in the United States – at our expense. (Yup, that's right.) We require a minimum of 40 participants. A workshop runs two to three hours, and can be adjusted to fit your schedule. It is appropriate for middle school, high school and college educators, curriculum developers, media specialists, district-level supervisors, and other education groups.
This is perfect for in-service training days!
Workshop description: From Facebook harassment to football protests, social media and clickbait content collide for heated, emotion-driven debates about free speech laws and limits. How can you cool the temperature and set a facts-first agenda? In this three hour workshop, NewseumED provides teaching tips, historical context and classroom-ready lessons on free speech basics, contemporary issues and checking for bias. Participants leave with new ways to help students find and assess sources — and themselves — for fairness to hold informed debates about their First Amendment rights.
There are a limited number of workshops available so act fast! Questions? Email newseumED@newseum.org or call 202/292-6650.
