Students explore how to seek out under-reported global stories and make local connections to them in this workshop.

Featured Lesson Plan:

Global Explorers [Media Literacy Workshop]

How do we get our news? What stories do we see and which do we miss? How do we build a balanced news diet that includes reliable sources covering the world’s pressing, under-reported global stories?

Students explore such questions in this 90-minute workshop that guides them in analyzing how global issues connect to their local communities and identifying practical ways to bring more diverse news outlets and topics into their news routine.

Working with students this summer? Planning toward the start of the next school year? Email the Pulitzer Center education team to schedule a workshop with us or to get support in facilitating your own.
