Lesson Plan: Youth and Education in Afghanistan

This lesson plan uses primary and secondary sources to explore the war in Afghanistan and its impact on youth and education. Students learn about Afghanistan's role in history, the rise of the Taliban, and the first decade of the United States' war in Afghanistan. Students then examine the experience of youth and the ability to access education in Afghanistan during this time-frame. Finally, the lesson plan suggests further resources, including readings for both middle school and high school students.
