How To Teach Current Events in Our Interconnected World

January 29, 2024

This webinar was hosted on Our world is interconnected. In a matter of seconds, news from across the globe can make its way to your students and into your classroom. Educators continue to go beyond the call of duty and try to supply students with the knowledge, skills, and perspective to understand our constantly changing world. How can you prepare to help students understand the news when a major world event makes its way to your classroom?

Join the experts at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Education for a conversation with an award-winning high school teacher, an expert on global affairs, and the teaching and learning director from this leading foreign policy think tank to learn best practices for teaching current events. In this edWebinar, you leave with:

  • Tips and tricks for how to incorporate current events into your class
  • Insight on global trends to watch and how they connect to your teaching
  • Examples of what worked (and didn’t work) in the classroom
  • FREE, non-partisan resources and ready-to-use lesson plans that offer a foundational understanding of world events
  • This recorded edWebinar helps educators make complex global affairs and foreign policy issues accessible for middle school, high school, and higher education students.
