I am an author and fan of RETHINKING SCHOOLS. Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they produce a lot of first-rate research, content, and classroom curriculum and instructional approaches to the teaching of a number important and timely topics—like Ethnic Studies, the environment, and war. These materials are great for the college classroom, as well.
In any case, they are generously making available a book titled, "Teaching About the Wars," appropriate to these days of violence and turmoil. Read the write-up below and consider downloading this volume for free.
Also consider making a donation so that the important work of this organization can continue.
Teaching About the Wars offers age-appropriate ways to discuss topics of war in the Middle East with upper elementary through high school and college students.
