Welcome to the Teach Palestine Project website!

The Teach Palestine Project website is a resource by and for K-12 teachers and teacher educators focused on bringing Palestine into our classrooms and schools. ||| The recent history and current reality in Palestine are connected to many issues we already teach, including: immigration, Manifest Destiny, borders and walls, the juvenile justice system, water and other environmental issues, and US policy in the Middle East.  |||  Yet almost no one in US schools teaches about Palestine—despite its importance in world politics, the many connections to US history, and the deep involvement of the US in Israel. As Palestinian and US educators, we want to change that.  |||  We know that there are many bars to teaching about Palestine: There is a serious lack of curriculum and age-appropriate information for students of different ages. Many of us feel we aren’t knowledgeable enough to take on such a controversial topic.  |||  But teaching Palestine is both possible and rewarding. We hope the units, lessons, resources, and background materials here will inspire you to either begin or expand your curriculum on Palestine. And please contribute your own curriculum, resources, and experiences to this site!
