Promoting Active Learning in the K-12 Classroom and Community Webinar
The new Massachusetts History and Social Science Curriculum Framework elevates civic engagement and media literacy in K-12 education. Media literacy education has become essential for college, career, and civic life. A key goal is to expand students’ relationship with media, equipping them with the skills to decode messages, question sources, discern bias, and evaluate various ways media can influence people. In this webinar, participants will explore tools and strategies for empowering students to change from passive consumers into active learners with media—and active participants in their community through civic engagement projects.
