The Arab-Israeli Conflict: Looking for a Lasting Peace. Choices for the 21st Century.
Brown Univ., Providence, RI. Center for Foreign Policy Development.
This mini-unit seeks to go beyond the acrimonious and divisive debate that has generally characterized the Arab-Israeli conflict and to provide high school students with five distinct options that allow them to explore a range of alternatives for U.S. policy toward the conflict and that provide them with a context for integrating and analysing newly acquired information. The guide offers students four sections of relevant, applicable background materials to consider and integrate as they explore the five policy positions. The unit includes 10-day and 5-day lesson plans. Both plans follow a similar sequence, first introducing the historical background of the conflict and presenting Arab and Israeli perspectives, then engaging students in a role play of U.S. options, and finally guiding them toward the development of their own ideas about U.S. policy.
