Contemporary events provide a unique teaching opportunity for students. The events of today provide an engaging way for students to explore how academic concepts discussed in class play out in real life. The Behind the Headlines series examines critical global issues that capture world attention. These issues also provide touch points for illuminating concepts of personal responsibility, national sovereignty, and global community. Behind the Headlines is designed to facilitate learning around the major thematic strands in social studies, and each topic provides an accessible, dramatic retelling of each event in order to encourage discussion. Each chapter is stunningly illustrated with images and graphics that engage students and support 21st century skill development, including effective reasoning, information evaluation, and global awareness.
