Teaching tolerance: Using world news media to teach values

Utilizing English news media channels in our English classrooms can open a world of ideas for our pupils. Teachers who bring world news events into the lesson can help pupils to become astute media consumers. More importantly, there are opportunities to blend values education into lessons about world events. Inspire your pupils to discuss values of tolerance, empathy, honesty, justice, and integrity through English lessons. In this workshop, participants will discuss the opportunities and challenges of using current events combined with values education in English lessons. Come and learn creative tools and techniques for your classroom.
