Palestinian and Israeli Literature

Overview: For many audiences, understanding of the Palestinian­Israeli conflict comes mainly from the media ­­ news of violence and of political friction dominate the airwaves, and we sometimes forget about the ordinary Palestinian and Israeli citizens involved. To get at the human element of the Palestinian­Israeli conflict, students will read, discuss, and reflect on stories from and/or about Palestine and Israel. Units are designed by theme/topic, and each unit contains readings from both Palestinian and Israeli perspectives on each theme/topic.This curriculum was designed for a grade 12 course.
