As PBS NewsHour continues to cover the latest events in Egypt and beyond, our site for students and teachers, PBS NewsHour Extra, partnered with Independent Television Service (ITVS) to pull together some unique perspectives on the situation for a live online discussion Tuesday, Feb.15 at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT).

Moderated by PBS NewsHour Correspondent Hari Sreenivasan, the discussion will add context for educators and students and provide voices from the region, media resources and lesson plans for the classroom.
