ACTIVITIES FOR EDUCATORS
Sign up to receive free teaching content each month
Textbooks are great for teaching about the past, but how do you teach your students about the issues dominating today’s headlines?
By signing up to receive News Decoder’s monthly Educators’ Catalog!
The Educators’ Catalog extends News Decoder’s tradition of merging education and journalism by delivering a curated selection of explanatory articles on topical global issues to educators each month.
Each edition features four recent articles — written by News Decoder’s correspondents and youth — designed to deepen readers’ understanding of global issues and spur critical thinking. Each pick is accompanied by an Editor’s Note that explains the selection and proposes classroom exercises. Each article also ends with three questions that test students’ understanding of the issues identified in the story.
Complete the form below to receive a copy of the Educators’ Catalog in your inbox each month.
