Introduction to the Middle East

Wed, January 24, 2007 | Region XIII ESC, Austin

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Middle East is in the news every day. Representatives from the Center for
Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin will present a day long
session where you will explore the Middle East.

You'll learn more about this critical geographic region that was the origin of three
major world religions and was led the way in intellectual and scientific
developments. We'll explore what's going on beyond the headlines to give you a
deeper understanding so that you can answer students' questions -- as well as your

Attendees will leave with classroom ready curriculum materials and creative ideas
for encouraging classroom discussion about an area of the world that's often
controversial and tricky to navigate.

For registration information, please contact Tina Melcher at
tina.melcher@esc13.txed.net or (512) 919-5425, or log on to the ESC XIII E-Campus
catalog (link below).
