Looking for middle school resources to explore hot-topic issues? Want to incorporate primary sources and practice real-world data analysis? Join Barbara Huth from Population Education in this interactive webinar that jumps into analyzing current and historic sources to make sense of how people are changing the world. Start with climate change: examining a variety of different types of data for themes, commonalities, and connections. Then jump into the issue of fracking and practice uncovering bias in sources. Finish with a historic case study of a US air quality disaster, and use historic images to recreate the story. Receive standards-aligned lessons, digital adaptations, and access to a library of classroom resources from Population Education.
