Want to inspire your students with global issues and the journalists who cover them? Join Fareed Mostoufi from the Pulitzer Center for the free edWebinar, "First Person: Bringing International Investigative Journalism into the Classroom" from You'll learn about Pulitzer's variety of programs and resources, which include compelling news stories from around the world, and methods that the Center and its educator partners have spent over a decade developing to engage and challenge students to think critically about how news is made.

Pulitzer Center's resources also help students understand how underreported stories from around the world connect to issues facing their own communities, and how they can use journalism skills to share their stories with the world. Resources include journalist visits over skype, hands-on journalism workshops, standards-aligned lesson plans that integrate global news into diverse curricula and much more.

This presentation will be of interest to elementary through high school educators. It is presented in partnership with Common Sense Education and is supported by Symantec.
