Re-Thinking the Middle East: New Approaches to 9-12 U.S. Curriculum on the Middle East and North Africa

Re-Thinking the Middle East: New Approaches to 9-12 U.S. Curriculum on the Middle East and North Africa

A team of scholars based at six US research universities created this extensive and fully developed curriculum on teaching the Middle East from a multidisciplinary perspective that is aligned with the Common Core objectives. Through the analysis of the most widely used World History textbooks in the United States, the innovative curriculum addresses the common conflation of the history of the Middle East and Islam. It also addresses the general reductive approach to teaching about the region with regards to its peoples, histories, and women. This is an amazing resource we highly recommend teachers to utilize. It is fully developed curriculum for 9-12.  Access the Full curriculum
