The Educators’ Catalog extends News Decoder’s tradition of merging education and journalism by featuring a curated selection of articles that can be used as teaching tools in the classroom.
The monthly catalog showcases four recent articles that challenge easy assumptions, deepen global understanding and spur critical thinking. The articles are written by our correspondents — who have deep experience covering complex stories with tact, clarity and insight — and by students in our network. Each pick is accompanied by a brief Editor’s note explaining the selection. Each article ends with questions that test a student’s understanding of the issues and stimulate further classroom discussion and research.
