Students explore the history of Syria from the Ottoman Empire to French colonial rule, Syrian independence, and the rise of the Assad regimes as historical background to understand the recent conflict.

This is an interactive, online workshop which will be conducted through Zoom. We will examine the readings, lessons, and videos included in the The Syrian Civil War unit that are appropriate for the geography, current issues, and world history classroom.
Participants will be expected to read the unit ahead of time, and come prepared to engage with their colleagues during the online program.
Cost: $75 per person.
Registration fee includes an individual two-year Digital Editions license for The Syrian Civil War unit.
A certificate of attendance for 4 hours, which reflects one hour of preparation for the online workshop, will be provided.

There are no refunds for no shows or last minute cancellations.
This online interactive workshop is appropriate for middle and high school world history, geography, social studies, and humanities teachers, including AP and IB educators.
