The workshop is 1-5 pm on Thursday, August 3, 2017 and will be held in Room 177A in Jackson Library on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. It is open to any rising 6th, 7th or 8th grader. It will have two parts: Part 1 will focus on finding reliable and appropriate information sources such as newspapers, magazines and authoritative web sites. Part 2 will cover using that information to develop an informed opinion and engage in constructive and positive conversation. The presenters are UNCG faculty, librarians, and graduate students. The workshop will be interactive and students will have a take-away to use in the future. Light snacks and drinks will be provided for a break.
There is no charge!
