Working Class: Connecting Classrooms & Careers

Posted by WVIA Admin on

History provides clues for solving present-day challenges. Math explains the mystery behind technology. Communication helps individuals work together to build rich and rewarding lives. Incorporating practical experiences and career exploration into lesson planning can help students apply basic theories and find areas of interest that could lead to future career interests.

Teachers, guidance counselors, administrators and home-schooling parents in Northeast Pennsylvania and the Central Susquehanna Valley are invited to take part in “Working Class: Connecting Classrooms & Careers” on Tuesday, May 3, from 9-11 a.m., at WVIA Public Media Studios in Pittston.

Participants will learn how free, public resources – including the “Working Class” public television series, a partnership of Pennsylvania College of Technology and WVIA Public Media – can help introduce 21st century career opportunities and workforce needs to elementary, middle and high school students.

Leading the conference will be WVIA’s director of education, Andrea O’Neill, as well as Penn College’s Elaine J. Lambert, special assistant to the president for creative development and public relations, and Christopher J. Leigh, video production coordinator. Lambert and Leigh created the “Working Class” series.

O’Neill will present an overview of public media educational resources offered at no charge to teachers and home-schooling parents.

Lambert and Leigh will present career information, including video and online resources specifically related to careers in design, which can be applied to lessons in a variety of subject areas from history (studying the impact of Leonardo Da Vinci on world history) to mathematics (investigating the uses of math in design).

Pre-registration is required for the Working Class: Connecting Classrooms & Careers event at WVIA’s studio. Interested educators and homeschooling parents may email andreaoneill@wvia.org or elambert@pct.edu to pre-register.
