How can we use stories to help students see that Palestine connects to their own lives? How can we weave it into current curriculum? In this interactive workshop, highlighting the voices of Palestinian youth, we model lessons and share student-friendly resources that explore connections between the U.S./Mexico border and Palestine, including: police violence, impact on children and youth, checkpoints, prisons, U.S./Israeli ties, environment (e.g.,water), and resistance.
