Donald was chosen as this year’s Grand Prize Tampa Bay Times Teacher of the Tear Winner because of his use of the newspaper to teach students about core civics concepts. Throughout the year, he uses the news stories, editorials and political cartoons from the Times to enhance lessons on government and current events. The newspaper helps students to visualize new material and apply the lessons learned to daily life. In this session, Donald will share some his lessons and passion regarding using the newspaper in his classes.
