Teaching Activities

Image from the story Build a U.S. Strategy for Responding to the Crisis in Sudan
In groups, students discuss and compare the U.S. domestic relief effort around Hurricane Katrina with the U.S. response to the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. Cross-pollinating the group findings, students present recommendations for an appropriate U.S. response to the Sudan situation.
Image from the story Bride Kidnapping and the Role of Women in Kyrgyzstan
Students discuss the complex cultural practice of bride kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan, then write a pretend letter to a Kyrgyz peer that compares and contrasts U.S. and Kyrgyz courtship and wedding traditions.
Image from the story Address Concerns Caused by Conflict in Colombia
In a "town meeting," student teams act as players in the Colombian pipeline war to discuss how to reduce pipeline spills and protect civilians.

If you are looking to teach about a particular region, we encourage you to visit the Stories by Place page to see what areas FRONTLINE/World has covered. Each story comes with streaming video and extensive accompanying Web content.


Maps


FRONTLINE/World also offers maps for each story. Please note that the maps emphasize places covered by the reporter in a segment, and are therefore more accurate as an illustration for a lesson using a particular story, rather than as a resource on their own.
