Understanding America’s Complex Relationship with the Arab World

Q2Anticipated Start Date: June 2016

PROJECT SUMMARY: We will organize and lead a 3-day colloquium to train a targeted group of educators on how to address complex issues of Arab-American relations.  Participants will create classroom-ready curricular resources that will assist in the teaching and learning of Middle Eastern studies and Arab-American relations.  If possible, materials will align to current standards, and all work will model best history education practice.  All materials will be open education resources.

PARTNERS:  This project will be based on collaboration and partnership with National Council for History Education, Organization of American Historians, Oklahoma University, and Qatar Foundation International.

FUNDING & SUPPORT: Funding from Qatar Foundation International.
