Average Rating 0 Reviews View This curriculum provides teachers, college faculty and other educators with the materials needed to engage students in a dynamic, interactive, and constructivist process of interpreting history and current events. It is designed to support the teaching of global studies, U.S. history, government, current events and media studies classes at the upper middle school, high school and college levels. Through use of slide, print, audio and video materials, students will develop critical thinking skills while learning core information about the Arab/Israeli conflict, the war in Iraq, and the resurgence of Islam. The curriculum is designed to challenge stereotypes and uninformed thinking and approaches to the political and moral issues surrounding the media and how it constructs knowledge and evaluation of historical and current events. This curriculum is divided into four units: 1. Introducing the Middle East 2. Israel/Palestine: Histories in Conflict 3. War in Iraq: Whose Void, Whose Story? 4.
