Featured Lesson Plan:
Every year, throughout the world, millions of young girls are forced into marriage. Child marriage is outlawed in many countries and international agreements forbid the practice, yet it persists across continents, language, religion, and class.
Photojournalist Stephanie Sinclair's documentary short is both an investigation of child marriage in India, Yemen, Afghanistan, Nepal, and Ethiopia and a call to action. In this lesson, students will view the powerful video and discuss the root causes of child marriage practices and how to combat them, around the world and at home.
Featured Reporting Project:
In advance of Earth Day (April 22), we're featuring short films on climate change and the environment. This week: how can culture and religion combat climate change? Gary Marcuse and Shi Lihong report on those pushing toward an "ecological civilization" that draws on Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, and other Chinese cultural traditions as a means of addressing the country's growing environmental challenges.
