The Arab-Israeli Conflict: Looking for a Lasting Peace. Revised Edition. Choices for the 21st Century.
Brown Univ., Providence, RI. Center for Foreign Policy Development.
This unit presents five distinct options designed to allow high school students to explore a range of alternatives for U.S. policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict. The unit includes a 10-day and a 5-day lesson plan. 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. The five options put forth are: (1) the United States should actively support Israel's annexation of the territories; (2) the United States should support the creation of a Palestinian state and forge closer ties with the Arab world; (3) the United States should persuade all parties to accept an even-handed settlement; (4) the United States should withdraw from the region; and (5) the United States should support United Nations administration of the territories. In addition to the student text, lesson plans, student activities, and abridged background readings are included in appendices. (DB)
