What in the World?

What can international media tell us about what is REALLY happening around the world?

Project Description

Students use the target language to explore a significant theme in current events (possible themes include migration and refugees, environmental sustainability, economic justice, or human rights). They engage with authentic news sources in the target language—podcasts, television shows, magazines, newspapers, and blogs. Each team focuses on a different geographic region or issue connected to the class theme and produces a podcast segment or newscast that describes and provides an analysis of the issue/situation in that region in both English and the target language.
