Professional Development

Our one-of-a-kind professional development opportunities provide the opportunity to share ideas, build partnerships and learn from leaders in the field of pop culture education.

Designed and administered by educators at Pop Culture Classroom, these opportunities give participants the chance to:

  • LEARN how to leverage this ubiquitous form of cultural expression to further their craft as educators.
  • DISCUSS how popular culture resources, events and expressions can be successfully integrated them into lesson plans for their particular classroom.
  • DEVELOP the ability to integrate pop culture into regular education, allowing them to combine relationship development with content education.

Currently, Pop Culture Classroom’s professional development opportunities include:
