Educators Invited to Connect with Award-Winning Television Series

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

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.

Pre-registration is required by e-mail to andreaoneill@wvia.org or elambert@pct.edu
