During this interactive workshop, participants will consider the research behind the curriculum, review curricular materials, and discuss how these resources can be integrated into their own classrooms. Breakstone leads SHEG's efforts to research, develop, and disseminate free curriculum and assessments. The Civic Online Reasoning curriculum won a Global Media and Information Literacy Award from UNESCO in 2020.
