Lesson Builder: Lesson Plans & Community Resources for Teachers

Lesson Builder

Welcome to our Lesson Builder, a digital tool and a supporting community of educators, that makes creating and sharing lesson plans around Pulitzer Center reporting easy.

Starting with a search engine that's been engineered to be most useful to teachers, you can find articles, videos, and photos from among our hundreds of reporting projects. Use broad search terms like "climate change" to see a range of reporting on that issue, or try more specific topics like "Rana Plaza collapse" or "Syrian refugee crisis" and filter by "video" or "article" to sharpen your focus and find the right media type.

Once you've found what you need, you can add an outline and provide questions for students to answer. It's a simple process that was designed for speed and flexibility. Teachers who'd like a jump-start or are looking for ideas can browse model lessons created in-house—and our community of educators has written dozens more.
