Critical and Captivating Current Events

Current Event Poster PreviewThis is my poster session at ISTE2015. I am scheduled to present from 8am-10am on Wednesday, July 1st in the Broad Street Atrium, table 4.

I will show the different ways I engage students with current events on a almost daily basis. Some of the resources presented are used on a regular basis, others are special extensions of the curriculum that includes news stories. The underlying lesson is digital literacy and critical thinking. I want my students to be knowledgeable about the world while being willing to ask the challenging questions. For the past two years I have had great success.
