Product Description
This is two short lessons, both comparing viewpoints of Israelis and Palestinians. One focuses on the right of Palestinians outside Israel & Palestine to return to their homeland. This is a huge sticking point in any peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. The other lesson focuses on Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Both lessons have students read a short article, decide what are the best points each side presents, and then explain which side made the best argument to support that viewpoint. The lessons do not require students to decide which views are correct, but to evaluate the arguments as presented.
These can be done individually or in small groups. My personal favorite is to have them work individually and then come together in small groups to refine their answers.
