Featured Lesson Plan:
May 3 is World Press Freedom Day, and this year's theme is Keeping Power in Check: Media, Justice, and the Rule of Law. Share the importance of a free press and an engaged public with your students with these five multimedia stories highlighting the responsibility and the hazards of being a journalist. Each story is accompanied with a lesson plan to guide critical discussion and allow students to assume the role of a journalist, stretching their analytical skills and exercising empathy.
K-12 students in the U.S. and abroad are invited to submit to the Fighting Words Poetry Contest for the chance to win cash prizes up to $100, publication, and performance opportunities. DEADLINE: May 18, 2018
Pulitzer Center staff is also available to facilitate a workshop to guide students in crafting successful entries. Schedule a workshop in your school by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
