Web-based mentorship: Arab-Israeli Conflict Simulation
Offered Fall & Winter
Meets Wednesdays 12-1 & Fridays 1-3
Wolverine Access #21579
This course is linked to a web-based simulation that engages middle school and high school students in exploring the Arab-Israeli Conflict through portraying current political leaders. You’ll facilitate this diplomatic simulation, pushing the students to act in ways that are in keeping with the beliefs and constraints that the person they are portraying would hold and operate under. The simulation is an attempt to give students a tangible window into the complexities of the diplomatic process. In this class, you will learn about the modern history and politics of the region, and you will support your students in thoughtfully assuming their character, and in writing purposefully and persuasively.
