Documenting Teenage Lives in Extraordinary Times
September 24, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Coming of Age in 2020, our first contest of the school year, acknowledges both the tumultuous events of this year and their outsized impact on young people — and invites teenagers to respond creatively.
We hope to create the richest possible portrait of what it’s like to be a teenager in America in 2020 as we can. To do that we’re hoping to reach your students, and young people in every corner of the country — from a wealth of backgrounds, communities and circumstances — and invite them to document their lives in ways that feel authentic and meaningful to them, whether through words or images, video or audio. No matter what format they choose, we believe every teenager has something important to say
This webinar will not only cover the basics of the contest, but will also suggest ways to help students brainstorm ideas both big and small, and use mentor texts to help those ideas shine. You will also hear from teachers who are using this contest in their own classrooms — and we’ll save plenty of time for questions and discussion.
