Unlearning: Who is the Main Character? | PBS Education

As Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche warned in her famous TED Talk, The Danger of a Single Story,

“Stories matter...Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.”

Let's reflect, what do we mean when we say inclusion? | PBS Education

What else in life are we, as an educational community in America, failing to experience when leaving out certain aspects that add value to our classrooms? In addition to that, if we fail to share our rich, diverse cultures, we also limit building a more inclusive community.

When Schools Shut Down In Alaska, These Students Went Moose Hunting - MindShift

Jamin Crow is one of three Alaska Native students — along with Kaylee King and Ethan Lincoln — who made a podcast about their hunting tradition. The students are from different towns, but met as interns at NPR's member station WUKY in their senior year of high school. Right before they graduated last spring, their podcast was chosen as a finalist in this year's NPR Student Podcast Challenge.

In the remote Yukon Delta region of Alaska, many families practice subsistence hunting to get food on the table. Three students reconnected with that tradition during the pandemic.

How the Nature-Loving Kratt Brothers Became PBS Rock Stars for the Younger Set

The Kratts’ signature style is likely familiar to anyone who has tuned into PBS over the last 25 years for “Kratts’ Creatures” or “Zoboomafoo” or the animated “Wild Kratts”: a torrent of animals facts, muddy pratfalls (or “Kratt-falls” in their parlance), and unbridled enthusiasm for learning about wildlife in a particularly hands-on manner.

But the public television mainstays, now beloved by children across several generations, were once not quite so understood by grown-ups.

Months into an expedition through the Amazon in the early ’90s, the Kratt Brothers — as Chris and Martin Kratt are known — were on the lookout for giant river otters, German shepherd-sized an…
