Rethinking the Region: New Approaches to the 9-12 US Curriculum on the Middle East and North Africa

This curriculum was born out of an extensive analysis of textbooks used in US high schools to teach about the MENA region. The authors identified five themes and developed detailed, web-based teaching materials to offer robust alternatives to 9-12 teachers.  The themes are as follows:

  • Women & Gender
  • Plural Identities
  • Empire & Nation
  • Political & Social┬áMovements
  • Arts & Technology
