Educator Resources for Malala

What does it take to become the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize? Ask Malala Yousafzai! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the extraordinary young woman who's been standing up for educational rights since she was a child. Growing up in a war zone ruled by the Taliban inspired young Malala to start blogging about the plight of girls in her region. Fighting for a better education was just the start of her career in activism. Malala has taken her message of peace and education for all to the White House, the United Nations, and young people in every corner of the world. She’s overcome prejudice, intolerance, and even an assassination attempt: At just 15 years old, she was shot and nearly killed for speaking out. But she refused to be silenced and only increased her resolve. Malala’s story is a remarkable one, and it just might motivate you to change the world, too!
