        Yemen Study Guide: How to Explain Images of War to your Students | PBS NewsHour

        The video contains graphic images of the civil war in Yemen. Please preview the video before showing it to your students. The segment provides a breakdown of the Yemeni Civil War and where it stands now. See the support material background essay for a brief summary of the key actors involved in the conflict, including the following: the Yemeni government, Houthis, Saudi Arabia, Iran, United Nations and United States. Also included in the support materials below are questions about the conflict's history and media literacy more generally to guide classroom discussion. 

        You may wish to stop the video after the field segment at 9m:08s. However, we highly recommend you watch the 2-minute interview between NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff and Jane Ferguson. See the reference map for geographic context.
