The vast reach of social media has served to propagate and endorse negative rhetoric that lend validity to antisemitic and xenophobic views. These narratives rely on singular viewpoints which shape student perception about themselves and others. Testimony counters these narratives by providing perspectives from underrepresented voices.
This webinar will demonstrate how to access various viewpoints and voices on IWitness to extend lessons and broaden student perspective.
As a result of this webinar, educators will:
Develop an understanding of how testimony can be used across the curriculum and expand student perspective
Learn how to access testimony-based resources relevant to various topics of study
Consider how broadening students’ perspective promotes social-emotional well-being
