As the war on Gaza intensifies, we’re watching in horror as an unimaginable catastrophe catapults forward. As teachers, we know we need to help our students discuss and try to make sense of what’s happening. This is both difficult and critical because the mainstream media, as well as our local, state and national governments, are almost completely dominated by the Israeli narrative. We have curated a few resources to help educators understand what is happening on the ground in real time, as well as background information about Palestine and resources to use with students at different grade levels. Let us know if you’d like to talk or have questions:
