NewseumED Free Speech Essentials
Professional Development Workshop 

From Facebook harassment to football protests, social media and clickbait content collide for heated, emotion-driven debates about free speech laws and limits. How can you cool the temperature and set a facts-first agenda? In this three hour workshop, NewseumED provides teaching tips, historical context and classroom-ready lessons on free speech basics, contemporary issues and checking for bias. Participants leave with new ways to help students find and assess sources — and themselves — for fairness to hold informed debates about their First Amendment rights. In the afternoon, we will continue the work by giving teachers time to work together to create a plan of action as to how they might begin using the lesson plans in their classrooms. 

Who is NewseumED: The mission of the Newseum, located in Washington, D.C., is to increase public understanding of the importance of a free press and the First Amendment. NewseumED is a free online learning platform that reaches more than 11 million teachers and students around the world. Its unique approach to history, civics and media literacy helps students cultivate the skills needed to make informed decisions in a divided and demanding world.
