        Let students learn about the culture of Myanmar and its attempts at modernization with this PBS NewsHour video and educational resources from April 17, 2014.

For further background and materials to support student understanding of the issue see the Teacher’s Guide, Student Handout, and Informational Text in Support Materials below.
