    Voices for All in Social Studies: Breaking through Bias

    Social studies teachers of all disciplines face the challenge of discerning the increasing volume of and sources of information. To build a relevant classroom for students and future citizens, teachers are constantly developing their own information and media literacy as they vet sources and tailor curriculum to fit their students' needs. Additionally, students need these tools so that they may adapt to an ever-changing globalized environment.

    At the conference, teachers will interact with people representing multiple perspectives in the social studies. Working with a variety of methods for interpreting news media and social studies literacy, teachers will be ready to equip their students with increased understanding of the various voices that are or should be heard in a democracy, the ability to exercise their own voices effectively,  as well as the ability to break through the bias of information to analyze a source’s value, limitations, and narrative.  Participants will thus develop an expanded language and toolbox with which to extend student abilities to break through bias to develop a broader understanding of the world around them.
