The ISIS Threat: Teaching About the Complex War Raging in Iraq and Syria

This resource by The Learning Network at the New York Times uses NYT articles, editorial cartoons, and primary sources to teach students about the origins and expansion of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Students analyze sources and then debate possible U.S. and international responses. A lesson plan to guide teachers is also included.
