Freedom of the Press

Freedom of the Press | DSC Library | Scoop.it

"Freedom House has been at the forefront in monitoring threats to media independence since 1980. A free press plays a key role in sustaining and monitoring a healthy democracy, as well as in contributing to greater accountability, good government, and economic development. Most importantly, restrictions on media are often an early indicator that governments intend to assault other democratic institutions." 

 

This interactive map shows some intriguing spatial patterns about the freedom of press internationally.  What other patterns to you see in matching up with the most free presses in the world (in green)?  How does a free (or not free press) influence the cultural and political values of a country?

Lots of lateral thinking puzzles - Resources - TES Australia | DSC Library | Scoop.it
I use these every lesson with all of my classes (years 7-11) as ‘bell work’ to get them settled. I’ve found them to be really effective. Most of the kids seem to really enjoy them and they’re always keen to try and work out the answers. Quite entertaining for the teacher too - some of the solutions the kids come up with are hilarious!
