Finding common ground with sports topic of education workshops Oct. 8-9

Several Brigham Young University organizations will host a workshop for Utah secondary school teachers titled “Sports and Global Society: Rethinking School Cultures,” Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 8 and 9, at 4 p.m. Wednesday’s session will be held at the BYU Salt Lake Center at the Triad Center downtown, while Thursday’s session will be held at Jordan High School in Sandy.

Participants will hear experts explore how ideas about sports can provide students of varying backgrounds with tools to find common ground in the dominant school culture. Teachers from all subject areas are welcome to attend.

Attendees will receive two free tickets to the Real Salt Lake soccer game at the newly completed Rio Tinto Stadium Thursday night at 7 p.m. following the workshop.
