This is a programmed reading activity explaining key events in the Middle East from the Mandate System after WW1, birth of Israel, Suez Crisis, Six Day War, Yom Kippur War, Camp David Accords, PLO & Arafat, Iranian Revolution, and the Iran-Iraq War. It does NOT touch upon First Gulf War, US Invasion of Iraq 2003, or the US Invasion of Afghanistan.
It is a programmed reading so the left column has the reading text and the right hand column has questions for students to answer as they read. The answers can be found in the text next to the questions.
I have used this in a variety of ways in class. I've used it as a 2 night homework assignment or in sections in class.
