PBS American Narratives Educator Webinar Series 11/8, 11/10 & 11/15 at 7PM EST (Virtual Professional Learning Series)


Join us for this series to explore how to rethink and disrupt many of the false historical narratives using digital tools available from PBS LearningMedia, and perspectives from leading scholars at 7PM ET on 11/8, 11/10 & 11/15/21. 

Together, we will explore media literacy techniques to help teach more accurate, complete histories. You will learn how to use media-rich resources to scaffold existing curriculum and how to help students better evaluate the impact of complicated historical figures, including Ernest Hemingway and Muhammad Ali.  
We are inviting you to join us--and our All-Star panel of guest speakers--for this three-part virtual learning event, happening November 8, 10 and 15 at 7pm.
