Lesson Plan, Unit


By Bethany LorgeThis unit is designed to look at various cultures throughout the world and examine the reason for conflict in each of them. By looking at snapshots of information for various cultures and situations (e.g. Africa, Israel/Palestine, India/Pakistan, North/South Korea), students come to the understanding that conflict is due to many factors, but there is always a matter of different perspective for each situation. The students look at the history of each situation from a factual standpoint, but they also are stretched to investigate and explore the perspectives of each as well. The students’ performance task has them creating a news show that interviews representatives of each side of the conflict as well as a “scholar” on the situation who has developed a solution to bring peace to the area.These works are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
