Sports PR Agency is a curriculum that will emphasize the importance of conduct and security. Using the model of a public relations agency, students will learn just how important it is to act ethically online, keep themselves safe from cyber threats and most importantly, balance their mental health with their digital citizenship. This curriculum uses the following elements of ISTE standards:

ENGAGE: Warm-up activities that cultivate interest, introduce new ideas, or solidify understanding of previous concepts.
EXPLAIN: A succinct portion of text that is perfect for students to get the facts. It includes a summary, vocabulary glossary, and “Another Look” questions.
EMPOWER: Summary ideas and vocabulary are stressed through a timed quiz game format. Digital flashcards give students a chance to practice before diving into the quiz, or at any time throughout the lesson.
ELABORATE: Often a hands-on, lab, innovation, or group activity that brings a practical approach to understanding challenging concepts and ideas.
EVALUATE: A graded self-assessment that students can take to gauge their level of understanding of the current lesson.
EXPLORE: Perfect for early-finishers with articles, videos, and career connections, it helps foster deeper connections and real-world applications surrounding the topic.
ENRICH: Features a project-based and hands-on approach with greater opportunities for Science and Engineering practices. These activities are perfect for enrichment and can be made optional for those students needing extra practice and review time.

This curriculum is very hands-on and intended for an in-classroom experience. Students will be given packets that you can find in your Teacher Resources, print and administer to your classroom accordingly. Additionally, they will learn to use Google services such as Docs, Slides and Drawings.

This curriculum is guided by instructional videos, instructions for in classroom activities, quizzes, flashcards and as well as written responses which will be graded by the teacher. Students will access Sports PR Agency by clicking the icon on their interface containing the basketball.

Please be exceptionally mindful that this curriculum is very hands-on. Pacing can easily be adapted based on the preferences of the classroom or computer teacher and time restraints of the class. The Sports PR Agency curriculum is divided into nine units, each covering an estimated three days of classroom work. Although most assignments are written for individual completion, the course is structured for an interactive classroom to facilitate greater student communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.
