For educators and community organizers: check out our FREE lesson plans and video modules for the film Shayfeen.com: We’re Watching You about three women in Egypt who form an online watchdog group to monitor the elections in 2005.
This is a great way to teach about democracy, corruption, and the power of citizen journalism to effect social change. The lesson plans are part of our Women’s Empowerment collection of educator resources.
Watch a trailer of Shayfeen.com after the jump.
Educators: get back to the future with your students! Check out ITVS’s online series FUTURESTATES, short films fusing an exploration of social issues with elements of speculative and science fiction.
Free companion lesson plans for grades 9-12 are now available!
