Fellowships to USA and Territories educators for workshops addressing how to integrate global news into their classrooms. The program is intended to help educators learn to engage their students in making local connections to global news, practicing media literacy skills, and building empathy. There will be two tracks: one for Chicago-based educators, and one for educators throughout the nation. Participants will explore the following theme: Journalism and Justice: Elevating Underreported Stories in the Classroom.
Fellows will examine systems of (in)justice by engaging with underreported global news stories from diverse media platforms. Fellows will explore media literacy skills and connect with journalists who cover stories on a range of pressing global issues from migration to racial justice and from climate change to incarceration. Ultimately, teachers will design standards-aligned units that guide students in making local connections to global issues, highlight the relationship between journalism and justice, cultivate empathy by centering underreported stories, and empower students to share their learning and take action.
In the fall semester, Fellows will participate in eight evening workshops to explore underreported news stories and connect with Center-supported journalists. They will then develop short units (three–10 class periods) that engage their students in making local connections to global news, practicing media literacy skills, and building empathy.
In the spring semester, Fellows will implement their short units, evaluate student outcomes, and share their projects publicly through the Pulitzer Center’s online lesson library and virtual professional development programs.
The first five sessions will include seminars with award-winning journalists, and exploration and evaluation of underreported news stories on a variety of systemic issues. The remaining four sessions will focus on strategies and resources to engage students, unit brainstorming and development, and opportunities for peer feedback on unit drafts. All sessions will be held live via Zoom.
