Web Seminar on Building Literacy Skills Through Visual Journalism

On September 27, 2017, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. (ET), two New York Times Learning Network editors, a Times video journalist, and a classroom teacher will host a free webinar entitled “Picture This: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills With New York Times Photos, Videos, and Infographics.” During the webinar, the presenters will introduce some quick ways any teacher can find and use Times visual journalism to enliven their curriculum, help students practice literacy skills, and encourage connections between the classroom and the world. Whether using an interactive infographic to make history personal, a three-minute science video to illustrate a concept, a mysterious photograph to teach the skill of finding evidence, or an editorial cartoon as a writing prompt, participants will learn myriad ways that the vast visual offerings of the Times online can complement almost any curriculum. Online registration is open to join the free live webinar or to receive a link to stream the recorded webinar.
