Providing a complete background on the troubles in the mideast region is a challenge even for this experts. This site offers lots of background information, chronologies, and biographical data to help students understand this complex issue.

tag(s): arab (18), israel (17), salem (6)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plan on this site guiding teachers on successful ways to use this site in their classroom. This site can also be used as a learning center or station during a unit on one or more of the conflicts in the Middle East. Save this site as a favorite on classroom computers to allow for easy student access and retrieval. Have students research further on the site one of the specific conflicts with the intentions of presenting their results to the class. Have students use a tool such as Woices (beta) (reviewed here). This site allows students to create audio recordings AND choose a location (on a map) where the story takes place. Students can retell the events of the conflict in a way that visually corresponds with their descriptions. This would be a great resource for a Government or Cultural Geography class.

A thorough, factual rundown on the country, containing political, economic, geographic, and other background information. Good starting point for a study of the country itself. From the CIA World Fact Book.

tag(s): afghanistan (7), terrorism (49), terrorist (16)

In the Classroom

Share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector as an introduction to current political problems in the Middle East. Open up factbook pages for the United States and some of the other countries bordering Afghanistan and compare and contrast their statistics. Could any of these statistics have an impact on the political problems there today? Use this site as a tool to spur discussion among students that deals with real world problems rather than those in a textbook.

tag(s): afghanistan (7), terrorism (49), terrorist (16)

In the Classroom

Although this is more than ten years out of date, there is a lot of reliable information here that can be used to establish a background for the current conflict in Afghanistan. Use this site as an activator for a unit on the modern conflict today. Have students read the article for a class discussion on it's accuracy and whether or not the events have played out as the author predicted. This would be useful in a Government or Cultural Geography classroom.

The Federation of American Scientists has created a frequently-updated listing of terrorism reports and resources, including government reports, background articles, and related information.

tag(s): terrorism (49), terrorist (16)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a reference for a class debate on the success of US intelligence in handling the threat of terrorism in the past decade. This site would obviously have to be supported by other resources, but would definitely be a great starting point for student research. This would be a useful resource in a US government class.

tag(s): terrorism (49), terrorist (16)

In the Classroom

The reading here is both dense and full of high-level vocabulary that almost limit its usage to that of an AP classroom. However, if your readers are able, this could be used in a class debate or discussion about current events in the Middle East.

If using the activity in class, have students compare the two perspectives via Venn Diagram on classroom computers or the Interactive whiteboard. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).

Here's another introduction to Islam, this time from the University of Calgary. It's intended as a succinct college-level tutorial, but it contains a wealth of facts for either teachers or AP students. Well worth exploring if you're interested in this period.

tag(s): middle east (30)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a means to help students review the major concepts of the Islamic Empires to 1600. Teachers can allow students to complete it as an in-class assignment or post it to their teacher webpage to allow them to do it independently. This would be a helpful resource for a World History class.

tag(s): middle east (30)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on World Religions, specifically during a lesson on the differences between the two muslim sects. Have students explore the site in cooperative learning groups with the intent of summarizing the main points in a presentation piece. Have cooperative learning groups create podcasts demonstrating their understanding of one of the concepts. Use a site such as PodOmatic (reviewed here).

The Washington Post presents this extensive site which examines the conduct and consequences of the Gulf War in 1991. Complete with maps, damage assessment charts, and commentary by former commanders, the site chronicles the war's effect on the middle east while discussing the problems inherent in managing a limited conflict. Good starting point for a discussion of the interplay between military, political, and diplomatic interests in American foreign policy.

tag(s): middle east (30)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an extended learning center during a lesson(s) on the Gulf War. Because there is a lot of information on this site, we recommend creating a follow-along or guide to highlight for students what is the most important. For help creating easy sheets, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).
