Comparative Religion for K-12 Educators (Livestream - 3 SCECH)— 2021-06-24 through  2021-06-24$35— LivestreamView Details

Thurs., June 24, 6-8:30 p.m. The American Academy of Religion has made the following statement: '1) there exists a widespread illiteracy about religion in the U.S.; 2) there are several consequences that stem from this illiteracy, including the ways that it fuels prejudice and antagonism, thereby hindering efforts aimed at promoting respect for diversity, peaceful coexistence, and cooperative endeavors in local, national, and global arenas; 3) it is possible to diminish religious illiteracy by teaching about religion from an academic, non-devotional perspective in primary, middle, and secondary schools'. Join Sarah Montgomery-Richards, an educator in Comparative Religion with an M.A. in Interfaith Action, as we explore the topic of Comparative Religion in a K-12 setting. Learners will engage in a consideration of the tools and resources that have been developed for educators, and will leave with materials that are accessible and applicable to the classroom.

Teaching to the Web: Information Literacy for Internet Age (Livestream-6 SCECH)— 2021-08-10 through  2021-08-12$79— LivestreamView Details

Tues., Wed., and Thurs., Aug. 10-12, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. We face a slew of complex global challenges when it comes to navigating and evaluating information online including sophisticated disinformation campaigns; radicalization of young people; skepticism of science; mistrust of experts; and declining public trust in media, government and each other. Though many of these challenges are new incarnations of long-standing issues, it is becoming increasingly clear that we need new tools to confront them. Our students are exploring and learning about the world largely through digital means, and they need information literacy strategies designed with a networked information landscape (i.e. the internet) in mind. Join a cohort of fellow teachers in exploring and applying practical approaches to evaluating online information, and identifying opportunities to integrate them into your teaching.
