In this episode and through this educator’s guide, students will explore and reflect upon Golda Meir’s life, her successes and her failures. Students will be asked to consider what truly makes someone a hero. Is it someone infallible? Students will also think through Golda Meir’s early life in which she made sacrifices for her Zionism, making the decision to immigrate to Israel from the U.S.
