Educator Innovator’s newest partner, The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, provides educational resources for students and teachers to engage with underreported issues in global affairs.

The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting is an award-winning non-profit journalism organization dedicated to supporting engagement with underreported issues in global affairs through journalism grants and educational outreach. Their education programs for teachers and students aim to increase students’ global competency, critical thinking, and communication skills, while also inspiring participants to become active consumers and producers of news.

Free programs and resources for educators include:

  • Free Global Journalism—Search thousands of print, video, photo, and digital stories published in over 150 media outlets. Reporting can be filtered by media, region, and issues such as population and migration, drug wars, global health, climate change, LGBTQ+ rights, religion and power, and more.
  • Lesson Plans—Search hundreds of standards-aligned lesson plans that use global reporting as a foundation for writing, text analysis, debate, research, digital storytelling and more. Lessons can be filtered by grade level, media, subject area, and global issue.
  • Journalist Visits—Schedule a presentation by a Pulitzer Center journalist in-person or over video conference for a behind-the-scenes look at global reporting.
  • Programs For Students—Workshops available in-person and through video conference use global reporting and hands-on activities to teach news literacy, writing, photography, research, and digital storytelling skills.
  • Professional Development for Educators—Hands-on, customized workshops led by our staff and journalists introduce techniques for integrating journalism skills and global news into diverse curricula.

Resources from The Pulitzer Center can support youth in being both active consumers and producers of news, and in surfacing underreported stories in their own communities and having tools to represent their own stories.
