Diversity in Diaspora
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

In this unit students will be introduced to the geography of Jewish and Palestinian diasporas and artwork from each group that demonstrates how people who have experienced diaspora are preserving their cultures and reclaiming the narratives that have been told about them. The unit introduces students to the historical injustices of both global antisemitism and settler Zionism with an emphasis on understanding the experience of diaspora. The goal of the unit is for students to become acquainted with the diversity of groups that were forced into diaspora. A more complete understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is left for a future time. This content is most appropriate for 11-12 grade students who have completed World HIstory. It is ideal but not essential that students are already familiar with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The resources in this packet contain three primary components: ideas for designing case study lessons, a high school lesson based on a case study, and a middle school lesson based on a case study. The section on designing lessons can help teachers take content from the workshop and create their own materials and units of study. The lessons plans can help teachers begin to connect students to these issues more immediately, and are ready to be adapted and implemented in secondary classrooms.
