Primary Source Global Action for Social Justice Series Webinar

From Primary Source: Happy New Year! I hope all of you enjoyed pleasant holidays with friends and family.  I want to let you know that we have a webinar series beginning on January 18 and we welcome more teachers to participate.  Our Global Action for Social Justice series will includes sessions on human trafficking, the UN's sustainable development goals, and sports and human rights.  All details are below — please share with your teachers — they can sign up directly using the link at the bottom of the descriptions.  New for this year:  with participation in all three sessions (plus an assignment), teachers can earn 10 PDPs.

DATES: January 18, February 15, and TBD 2017

Our three-part webinar series will introduce educators to global issues unfolding on many continents. This year we explore social justice tools and approaches that include the United Nation’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development, the international effort to eliminate human trafficking, and the global campaign to establish access to sports and play as a human right. Scholar experts will join the conversation to provide context for the issues. Classroom resources will also be shared.  Participants may register for one, two or all three sessions but PDPs are only provided for participation in all three.  Open to all K-12 educators.
