Young upstanders against fake news and hate speech!

Marcin Stanowski


Teachers of English do not have to save the world. But we can. We have all tools needed to at least try. Anyway, we are the changemakers. In the presentation/ workshop I will suggest that the fight against fake news and hate speech is actually realized through maintaining healthy relationships with students. I will present low resource communication techniques that you can use in your classroom that will teach English and skills necessary for a young person in order to enter the brave new 21st century world. Such skills I believe are assertiveness, empathy, critical thinking and readiness to stand up for the good cause.
