Want to inspire your students with global issues and the journalists who cover them? Join Fareed Mostoufi from the Pulitzer Center for this edWebinar. You’ll learn about Pulitzer’s variety of programs and resources, which include compelling news stories from around the world, and methods that the Center and its educator partners have spent over a decade developing to engage and challenge students to think critically about how news is made.
Pulitzer’s resources also help students understand how underreported stories from around the world connect to issues facing their own communities, and how they can use journalism skills to share their stories with the world. Resources include journalist visits over skype, hands-on journalism workshops, standards-aligned lesson plans that integrate global news into diverse curricula and much more.
This presentation will be of interest to elementary through high school educators. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of Fareed’s presentation.
About the Presenter
Fareed Mostoufi is the senior education manager at the Pulitzer Center, where he designs classroom resources and educational experiences that connect global news with students and educators. He was a freelance curriculum writer for Pulitzer Center for several years, but joined the team after working for nearly four years as a theater artist and educator in the Community Engagement department at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. While at Arena, Fareed devised and directed original autobiographical plays with communities in Washington, D.C., Peru, India, and Croatia that explored violence, health, and identity. Before that, Fareed taught ESL and Spanish in D.C. public schools. As a recipient of a 2009 Fulbright scholarship to Argentina, he also taught culture, literature, and playwriting at a teachers’ college in San Miguel de Tucumán. In collaboration with the Ministry of Education there, he created the workshop Drama Techniques for English Language Learners, which was presented to more than 400 teachers in the Tucumán province. Fareed received his BFA in dramatic writing from New York University in 2008 and his MA in teaching from American University in 2012. He is passionate about social justice and is a firm believer in the power of storytelling to cultivate empathy.
