This Powerpoint looks at the historical roots of the Sunni-Shi-ite split in Islam in an effort to provide a fuller understanding of the complex problems and issues facing the Middle East today.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also several pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest.
