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.
Teaching About the Syrian Civil War: Origins and Consequences
This session will take place as part of the virtual NCSS Annual Conference.
The Syrian Civil War and resulting refugee crisis is a defining humanitarian issue of our time. How did colonialism, sectarianism, and the Arab Spring affect Syria?

NOTE: This session will begin at 5 pm ET.
All who attend the session will receive a one-year Digital Edition license for The Syrian Civil War curriculum unit from the Choices Program.
