Education World has added a student discussion guide, “Malala’s Courage,” to its current-events resources. The guide’s thought-provoking questions and links to additional resources help students explore Malala Yousafzai’s significance to the world.
Along with other resources on current events, educators will find a discussion guide on the end of the government shutdown as well as a discussion guide on the Affordable Care Act. Education World's up-to-date resources are designed to engage students, encourage critical thinking and help them put world events in context.
Lesson plans and guides span the grades while incorporating a variety of academic subjects and skills including art, reasoning and language; math, map reading and critical thinking; writing and literature; and social studies and history.
“Lessons that touch on events in the news give students an opportunity to share their reactions and opinions. This is a surefire way to spark young people’s interest,” explains Education World General Manager Rich Datz.
