I put this together as a current events lesson for my US and World History classes. They were interested in what ISIS is and why Paris was attacked, as well as what happened.
This lesson covers who ISIS is, what they want, where they are, plus goes into detail about what happened in Paris. I ended with a discussion about why it is politically incorrect to blame all Muslims and Middle Eastern refugees for these acts.
I also briefly discussed the Beirut attack, but most time was spent on Paris.
