Last week, North Korea conducted a nuclear test that has the world back in conversation about nuclear weapons. So for this week's News Bite, we invite you and your students to join that conversation. Students will explore a variety of media to learn more and discuss the complex issues surrounding nuclear weapons.
Our featured Lesson of the Week is "Informing the World About Cholera: Analyzing How an Author Compares Outbreaks in Manhattan and Haiti" by our brand-new education team member Fareed Mostoufi.
A review on what this weekly email is all about:
Ninety percent of you have told us that you regularly use current events in your classroom. So we'll feature a small "News Bite," which will contain one piece of Pulitzer Center journalism content—an article, photograph, podcast or short film—that relates to something in the news that week, as well as a brief lesson outline and a few guiding questions. We're hoping these News Bites will be an easy way for you to access fresh, topical content. We'll also include an in-depth "Lesson of the Week," written either by a Pulitzer Center staff member or curriculum developer or a member of our Educators' Community, on any subject.
As always, we're eager for your suggestions. Let us know what you think.
Mark and Amanda
