Grantee Spotlight: Facing History & Ourselves

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Teachers learned how history could be used to provide context for current events at a March 15, 2011 workshop hosted by Facing History & Ourselves.

This workshop prepared Chicago Public Schools teachers to teach students from the Chicago area to understand the critical role that media and journalism play in their lives using the documentary Reporter as a teaching tool. Reporter is about award-winning journalist Nicholas Kristof and his work in the Congo. It demonstrates how and why reporting is vital to our democracy.

Later this summer, there will be another intensive two-day workshop for Facing History teachers to become part of a national network of teachers exploring ways to use digital technology.
