Bring journalists to your classroom
I’m writing because you’ve either worked with the Pulitzer Center in the past, or have expressed an interest in doing so. With the 2013-2014 school year about to begin, I’d like to invite you to be part of our program.
In short, we bring critical issues like climate change, food security, global health, and resource extraction to students through vivid, high-quality journalism projects. In Philadelphia and Chicago we are often able to bring the journalists themselves into classes, adding a personal dimension to big-picture global issues.
This year, we’ll be exploring the question, “What is a global point of view?” through a monthly series of interactions, both in person and online. You are welcome to dip in and out depending on your needs and interests, and we welcome your suggestions and requests. With more than 300 projects and some 200 grantees, we have a substantial pool of resources from which to draw. (http://pulitzercenter.org/gateways) We’ve worked with English, Social Studies, Geography, History, Environmental Systems, Biology, Photography, Video, and of course Journalism students at most grade levels.
You can e-mail me at email@example.com or use this form to describe your needs.
