Facing History and Ourselves is offering a free online workshop for educators titled"Teaching Reporter". This workshop will focus on bringing Facing History's new study guide of the same name and Making Media, Making Sense, Making a Difference, a companion website that hosts web-exclusive content and lesson ideas to classrooms worldwide.
In the documentary Reporter, we follow New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof as he works to get his readers to care about what happens on the other side of the hill. We see how he uses social science research and the tools of journalism to try to expand his readers' universe of responsibility - the people whom they feel obligated to care for and protect.
This Online Workshop will be held between Monday, March 21 and Friday, April 1, 2011. All educators are invited regardless of their computer use skill level. By registering for this workshop, you are committing to logging on to the site and participating in the online discussion at least three times over the two week period, for a minimum online time commitment of four to six hours. We also ask that you participate in a post evaluation.
