Podcast for Preparing the Next Generation of Global Citizens
PrimarySource has created the “What Teachers Need to Know” podcast specifically for educators who teach about global cultures or world events in their classrooms. In every compact episode, the podcast offers vital insight for understanding world cultures and current events so that teachers can facilitate deeper learning about the world with their students. The podcast introduces subject-matter experts and explores online resources that can help make a complex and dynamic world accessible for K–12 classrooms. The 12 episodes in The Middle East series focus on such topics as “What and Where Is the Middle East?” “Media Literacy & the Middle East,” and “Learning from Refugees.”
