Teaching the Middle East: A Resource for High School Educators

The development of academically excellent, free, online materials on the history and culture of the Middle East for high school teachers to use in their classrooms.

The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago and two on campus partners, the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the eCUIP Digital Library Project seek materials development support from NEH to create "Teaching the Middle East: A Resource for High School Educators," an extensive online teacher resource on history and culture of the Middle East. The goal of the two-year project is to provide high school world history teachers nationwide with an online resource that draws upon the best in humanities scholarship to help build student understandings of Middle Eastern history. At present, such material is in short support and, in many cases, does not even exist. Created with faculty from the University of Chicago and involvement of a panel of teacher advisors, this resource will enable high school educators to focus on key issues and events, shape meaningful lesson plans, and help their students examine the stereotypes that abound in today's society.
