On October 2nd, Sox Sperry, a Program Associate and curriculum writer for Project Look Sharp, will be conducting a free teacher webinar on how to use media decoding to invite students into a conversation about the challenges revolving around sustainability. High school and college educators and teachers-in-training are invited to register for this webinar where they can learn pedagogical techniques and curriculum materials that can help students to engage in critical thinking and emotional honesty. The agenda also includes discussion on the complex environmental, economic and social systems that underlie sustainability.
Green teacher, “a non-profit organization dedicated to helping educators, both inside and outside of schools, promote environmental awareness among young people aged 6-19”, will publish an article this fall by Mr. Sperry entitled: Sustainability Education and Media Literacy.
