This site puts you at the negotiating table. Drawing on the collective wisdom of former negotiators and military officials, politicians and legal scholars, architects and urban planners. The website lays out the concerns of both sides, determines the real obstacles to achieving peace, and explores potential solutions to these seemingly intractable challenges. It also provides you with a proposed lesson plan about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict through children's Eyes. The students learn about the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and explore the lives of three children who live in the troubled land.
Schoolchildren studying history in times of war or conflict learn only one side of the story – their own – which is, of course, considered to be the ‘right’ one. Yet teachers can be trained to be emissaries for peace-building, to teach both sides’ narratives and to allow their pupils to question what they learn regarding both narratives. This booklet originally written in Hebrew and Arabic aims to present both side’s narratives: on each page the Palestinian and Israeli narratives are presented with a space in the middle for pupils to write their own comments.
In this lesson plan created by MaryLynne Fillmon, the students are familiarised with personal stories of an Israeli and a Palestinian kid as well as the perspectives on the conflict and concerns of both sides.This lesson is designed to be completed in three to four days of regular classroom instruction.
