Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting Lesson Plans Based on Informational Text

Building on the Pulitzer Center's mission to spread global awareness, the Global Gateway program provides lesson plans to engage the next generation on pressing international issues. Pulitzer Center-funded reporting projects serve as the departure point for a multi-dimensional educational experience. Global Gateway provides students with fresh information on global issues, helps them think critically about the creation and dissemination of news, and inspires them to become active consumers and producers of information. Twenty-three lesson plans are included on this site. Each lesson includes a plethora of primary source documents and strategies for analysis and implementation--from research projects to writing assignments to media assignments. Students are encouraged to read, write, think critically, and evaluate sources.
