On Thursday November 6th from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST, Chris Sperry, Project Look Sharp’s Director of Curriculum and Staff Development will be conducting a free webinar event about the Middle East through Media Literacy. Chris Sperry has had many years of experience with teaching high school students about the Middle East.
During this webinar, Chris will explore the role that Media Literacy, Project-Based Learning and lesson design can play in motivating and engaging all students in deep scholarship, critical thinking and personal growth. Viewers will be introduced to lesson models from the Project Look Sharp curriculum kit, Media Construction of the Middle East, a video demonstration of the classroom media decoding process, a sample of a student simulated Middle East peace conference, and how teachers can teach key content while addressing common core standards in social studies and speaking and listening.
