With all the news out of the Middle East, we thought you’d like to have these e-learning resources handy should you need them in your reporting or teaching:

Covering Islam in America: Learn the religious, social, political and geographical facts about Islam so you can tackle stories with confidence and context.

Religion, Culture and Society: Getting Beyond the Cliches: Religion intersects nearly every story you cover. Learn how to tell those stories with greater context, skill and thoughtfulness.

Handling Race and Ethnicity: Examine whether and how to use racial and ethnic descriptions in news stories.

Reporting on Religion and Political Candidates: Learn best practices to execute solid stories about the faith of political candidates.

Enjoy the learning.
