Curriculum Workshops - Chicago, July 21-25, 2014
The Center for News Literacy is pleased to host the Chicago Curriculum Workshops from July 21-25, 2014 at Roosevelt University, 430 S. Wabash Ave. Chicago, Illinois.

Underwritten by a grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, we are pleased to host a week long workshop for educators interested in Latino-oriented News Literacy curriculum, and for educators from the Chicago area Colleges.

This intensive program offers educators the opportunity to learn about and develop critical thinking curriculum using the media as the primary classroom tool. Additional programs examining teaching news literacy focusing on Hispanic and African American media are also planned.

Room and board are provided for all participants for the duration of the program. Curriculum creation is entirely up to you!

Upon acceptance to the program, we will charge a registration fee of $30.00 to all participants.

A complete application must include:
- A comprehensive CV with a list of subjects taught over the last three years.
