We began a new unit on the Middle East/North Africa!
On Day 1 we talked a little about North Africa and why it has so much in common with the Middle East. Then we began a discussion on the Arab culture and the Islamic religion. The students also picked the countries on which they will do their term project.
Day 2 was devoted to finishing up the discussion on Islam, introducing the Israeli culture, and presenting information about Judaism.
Remember- terms and background knowledge is VERY important to know as we delve into the problems of the Middle East.
