ICS Hosts Pulitzer Center Event

On November 7, ICS was honored to host the Education Director and Education Advisor from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting for a professional learning event.

Paris-based photojournalist and Pulitzer grantee, Tomas Van Houtryve, who has recorded powerful, rarely seen images from the North Korean border, presented innovative ways to incorporate photo essays into existing curriculum and Common Core standards.

An additional focus of the session was on the Out of Eden Walk, a seven-year trek across the planet by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Salopek, uncovering crucial and often untold stories of our time. Paul’s walk will be featured as National Geographic’s cover story in an upcoming issue.

The Pulitzer Center, Harvard, and National Geographic have teamed up with lesson plans, an online learning community, an interactive blog, and more materials to engage K-12 classrooms worldwide.
