Lesson Plan: Revolution in Tunisia

This lesson plan asks students to explore the causes and immediate impact of the revolution in Tunisia, which started the Arab Spring. Students examine the role of demographics and the youth bulge not only as causal factors of events in Tunisia but in comparison to the United States. The questions raised about Tunisia's future following the toppling of Ben Ali can be supplemented with an updated investigation of the current status of and issues in Tunisia.
