Event description

Description

This one day workshop, a partnership between SC Economics and Heathwood Hall Episcopal School, will begin with a keynote address on the importance of identifying bias in the news, fact checking, and how to avoid fake news. Throughout the day, facilitators will model teaching strategies, such as debates and Socratic seminars, to engage students in the world around them and share assessment strategies. Sessions later in the day will focus on effectively using social media and technology resources in the classroom. Special attention will be devoted to using the news to make the most of the Stock Market Game. The day will conclude with teachers sharing best practices and ideas to support the teaching of current events in the classroom.
