Educators Invited to Connect with Award-Winning Television Series

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

Event postponed - new date TBA

Teachers, guidance counselors, education administrators and homeschooling parents interested in incorporating practical experiences and career exploration into lesson planning are invited to take part in a free workshop – Working Class: Connecting Classrooms & Careers – on Thursday, November 30, from 9-11 a.m., at WVIA Public Media Studios in Pittston.

Developers of the workshop say giving students the opportunity to connect their academic studies with real-world activities in a variety of career fields can encourage curiosity and increase the desire to learn more about the subject matter.

Workshop participants will learn how free resources – including the Telly Award winning “Working Class” public television series, a partnership of Pennsylvania College of Technology and WVIA Public Media – can encourage academic studies while introducing 21st century career opportunities to elementary, middle, and high school students.

The workshop will be beneficial for educators conducting both academic and career/technical classes.
