The Israel-Palestine conflict is one of the most controversial issues in our contemporary world.
This unit approaches the conflict through the vehicle of narrative constructed through the
judicious use of facts and perspectives. The unit materials include a broad spectrum of resources, lesson plans and student assignments
that will produce multiple narratives based on individual perspectives.
The unit, which was initiated by the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF)
Representative Assembly, closes with a critical thinking exercise that asks students to identify
the obstacles to peace and write their own narrative about the conflict.
