2021 CLACS Summer Teacher Institute

Underreported News Stories from Latin America

Please join Pulitzer Center and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for an engaging webinar and workshop series Monday, June 28-Wednesday, June 30, 2021 (9am-12noon CDT) that will introduce techniques for integrating journalism about Latin America, media literacy skills, and global competency skills into the curriculum. Led by education staff and journalist-grantees from the Pulitzer Center, this virtual Institute will include presentations by award-winning journalists Ana Maria Arevalo Gosen, Anita Pouchard Serra, and Valentina Oropeza. The Institute is also designed to give participants the opportunity to collectively explore ways to use journalism to teach communication and critical thinking skills, and to analyze how other instructors have employed Pulitzer resources to support their curricula and help students develop critical thinking, communication skills, and empathy.

A collaboration between the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, the UW-Milwaukee Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), UW-Madison Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies (LACIS) and the Florida International University (FIU) Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center.
