PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Updated: Jan 2017
Thirty-five teachers have bought my "Syria" product since August 2015. In June of 2016, I made this shortened version. If you want a more thorough treatment of Syria, then go to my product titled Syria (90 slides).

I am an award winning (see profile), recently retired HS Global Studies teacher. This power point on Syria would be appropriate for average or above average Sophomores through Seniors. Since retirement, I've taught Intro to Intl Politics at URI (for freshmen). I also teach part time in the Education Dept at Salve Regina Univ, where I supervise HS Social Studies student teachers, amongst other things. Hence, I feel I know my content well, I have lots of experience teaching this content effectively at various levels and, from my Ed. Dept. experience, I know a lot of strategies to get students excited and involved.

This power point covers essential background information needed to understand the conflict in Syria which leads to the emergence of ISIS. It covers Syrian history up until April 2016. I have another power point covering the emergence of ISIS, but you can't understand ISIS until you understand Syrian history up until 2016.

I have successfully used this power point with high school students, with Freshman International Politics students at the University of Rhode Island and with senior citizens. It would not be appropriate for middle school students.

This power point will continuously involve the students in analyzing many maps, graphs and editorial cartoons.

There will be significant parts of this power point which will help you, the teacher, understand this conflict better. There will be some parts you'll have to research on your own a bit further, and there will be some of the topics in the 55 slides that you will choose to delete.

A second file includes an 8 sided guided note sheet which corresponds with the power point.

TOPICS WHICH ARE COVERED IN THE POWER POINT:
Basic info/stats/geography about Syria
Shia vs Sunni
The Alawites
The al- Assad family dictatorship
Post – independence Syrian history
The conflict since the 2011 Arab Spring protests
Chemical Weapons in Syria
The Syrian Opposition, including ISIS and Al-Qaeda
The UN
Russian interests
The Refugee Crisis

Other products in my store which connect to the Syrian topic: Iraq, Iran, ISIS, Arab Spring - Egypt, Arab-Israeli Conflict and Islam. The Syrian migrant crisis power point focuses on the global challenge in dealing with the refugees, but does not deal with the causes of the violence.
