Interactive Quiz on Global Awareness

The New York Times Learning Network’s “Country of the Week” feature helps to build students’ geography skills. A weekly interactive quiz introduces students to a country via a recent video or photograph and then asks them to find that place on a map. The quiz then focuses on the demographics and culture of the country. For students or teachers who wish to investigate further, the Learning Network includes links to recent Times reporting from that place. The feature includes not only parts of the world that are making front-page headlines but also interesting places students may simply enjoy learning about via Times visual journalism. The first “Country of the Week” was published on Monday, September 18; students can look for new quizzes most Mondays during the school year.
