College of Education Analyzing Propaganda Teaching and Media Literacy
This event is in the past.
The Wayne State University College of Education presents Analyzing Propaganda Teaching and Media Literacy: Help your students analyze propaganda and develop media literacy skills.
Media literacy skills are essential tools for critically assessing media and social media today. Students are exposed to increasing amounts of information every day, and it is crucial for them to be able to distinguish between news, opinions, beliefs, and propaganda, and for them to understand how media, both historically and in contemporary society, can be used as a tool to incite hate and violence against certain groups.
Facilitated by the Zekelman Holocaust Center, 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 teach their students to critically analyze media in today's world.
Details about the location and parking will be provided to individuals who register. All participants will receive free parking, a catered dinner, a $50 gift card, and classroom material giveaways.
