These resources focus on Israel and Palestine and are split into seven weeks of content that cover the history of the conflict. They challenge students and learners to examine a range of sources such as images, maps and documentation in order to debate and discuss different view points in a polite and respectful way, and in the controlled environment of a classroom, before reaching their own views on the topic.
