Welcome to the
Global News VILLAGE

About this website




News and global issues

The Global News VILLAGE will help you to broaden your knowledge of current events and issues important to people around the world. You'll discover how to use the library to find and critically analyze news articles from sources beyond the major US media companies. You'll then be able to incorporate the perspectives of people from a wider range of experiences, cultures, and geographic locations into your understanding of global issues.

This VILLAGE is divided into three modules. They work best if you do all of them in order, but they are all designed to make sense on their own.

Module 1 addresses the question of why it's important to get international news from sources beyond the US media.

Module 2 will show you how to use the library and the Internet to find news produced around the world.
