Israel and Palestine: Avoiding Bias

We're rushing around, trying to cram some last bits of learning into the school year.  I fit two lessons into one class period today.  Hopefully it wasn't too much.

Essentially, we looked at how difficult it is to teach the Israeli/ Palestinian Conflict.  There is bias everywhere you look.

Here are my thoughts from the two lessons I previously taught.  Follow the instructions at the end of those posts if you want the extra credit.

Lesson 1 - from May 13, 2014.

Lesson 2 - from May 14, 2014.

They're pretty good.

Also, today we drew a map of Israel: a J, a circle, a rope, and a peanut.
