THE MIDDLE EAST IN FOCUS
MEDIA AS METAPHOR
The Middle East is a rich and diverse area of the world. This workshop will examine the Middle East through the lens of the media…theirs and ours. How does the Middle East see the US and how has media shaped and been shaped by events on the ground? The workshop will provide background on several issues of vital importance to us as citizens of the world and will give teachers the ability to share this with their students.
Teachers will receive a wealth of resources that will help them inform their students about this complex and varied part of the world. Teaching strategies for incorporating the Middle East into the Utah State Core Curriculum will be provided along with classroom materials. Teachers of any grade level will find this workshop valuable and will be better able to teach both American students and students from the Middle East.
