Rethinking the Middle East and North Africa: Innovative Curricula for High School

Monisha Bajaj & Maria Hantzopoulos
University of San Francisco & Vassar College
Friday, 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm -- Rm. B-257

This workshop presents an extensive open-access curriculum designed
for high school teachers to teach more effectively about the Middle
East and North Africa (MENA). The MENA region is often misrepresented
and stereotyped in the media and in textbooks; in response, this
curriculum highlights the diverse realities of the region.
Participants will learn about the curriculum and participate in a set
of activities on critical understandings of gender in the Middle East
and North Africa.
