A three-week institute for thirty school teachers on the historical roots of what has come to be called the "Arab Spring."

The University of California, Davis History Project seeks $185,000 to support a 3-week Summer Institute for School Teachers in 2013: Roots of the Arab Spring: Understanding the Historical Context for the Arab Uprisings. Omnia El Shakry will lead a team of scholars to guide 30 teachers through a study of the historical roots of the Arab Spring within the context of Modern Middle East history. Utilizing the Arab Spring as a unique prism through which to understand historical and contemporary forces shaping the modern Middle East, participants will be able to grasp the world historical significance of the revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia, and Syria within the larger context of modern revolutions and uprisings against entrenched regimes. We will guide K-12 educators to acquire new content knowledge, resources for lesson planning, and tools for using this knowledge to speak about democracy and the nature of civic participation at home and abroad, thereby bridging cultures and societies.
