India: Conflicts Within - Lesson Plans
The lessons below accompany India: Conflicts Within, a program of the Pulitzer Center.
In this one-day lesson, students will learn about the historical origins of the conflict in Kashmir, explore the current situation in Kashmir, identify quantitative and geographical data in media sources, and consider the role of perspective when analyzing sources.
In this lesson, excerpted from Indian Independence and the Question of Pakistan, students explore the 1947 partition of India through literature, analyze the political content of selections from a work of fiction, and identify the values and attitudes of the author.
Looking at India Today (Coming Soon)
Photographs and other images can be important sources of information as they provide clues about societies and how people live. Drawing from a selection of photos taken as part of the Pulitzer Center's Conflicts Within reporting, students will gather data, analyze it, and then develop a mixed media essay on the subject.
Additional lessons will be added as they become available.
The Pulitzer Center's Gateway educational initiative pairs original reporting with an open platform for students to contribute content and engage directly with journalists. To join the Pulitzer Gateway's India: Conflicts Within, please contact email@example.com.
Indian Independence and the Question of Pakistan is a one-week unit probes the rich history of South Asia, examines the debate leading up to partition, and provides insight into the historical dynamics that continue to shape India and Pakistan today.
