Media Literacy PD

Dear Utah History Day Educators:

I am happy to announce this professional learning opportunity; please share widely. This will be the fourth year we have sponsored PD on teaching the Holocaust by Echoes and Reflections. Their resources are simply outstanding. I hope to see you there!

Analyzing Propaganda & Teaching Media Literacy: The Holocaust as a Case Study, presented by Echoes & Reflections

  •   Monday, November 11, 4-7 pm
  •  @ Utah Division of State History (300 S. Rio Grande Street SLC)
  •  Cost: Free
  •  Register Online: http://bit.ly/2OCbACD

Media literacy skills have become essential for young people to successfully navigate and critically assess the ever-increasing amount of information they receive throughout their day — on social media, advertisements, television, and film. 

This learning opportunity examines the events of the Holocaust through the lens of media, by examining propaganda deployed by the Nazis to discriminate against Jews and other minorities. Educators will gain the tools to facilitate classroom discussions on the role and impact of Nazi propaganda during the Holocaust and support their students to critically analyze media in today’s world.

Join us for this FREE professional learning opportunity in downtown SLC.  Parking is free, food is provided, and relicensure points given.

Please help us spread the word to your colleagues in social studies and English/Language Arts. 

Contact Wendy at Utah History Day (wratzet@utah.gov) with questions.
