Arkin, Linda, Ed.; Greenberg, Hazel Sara; Barasch, Abby, Ed.
This resource guide provides background and source material about the Turkey for secondary teachers and students. In addition to suggested classroom activities, there are background readings and notes for the teachers that can be used for enrichment lessons with students. Each chapter views a single question from multiple perspectives. The six chapters focus on: (1) "Who Are the Turks?"; (2) "Is Turkey a Bridge between East and West?"; (3) "How Do the Turks Express Themselves in Music, Art and Literature?"; (4) "How Did the Turks Create a Tolerant Community?"; (5) "What Is Daily Life among the Turks?"; and (6) "How is Twentieth Century Leadership a 'Lens' for Change?" The volume concludes with a description of the accompanying slides, a 50-item select bibliography, and 14 endnotes. (EH)
