In summer 2007, a group of Western Pennsylvania educators toured Egypt to study that country's unique intersections of East and West. Based on their experiences and professional expertise, this free workshop series has been designed to help teachers incorporate age-appropriate and culturally sensitive content into existing school curricula.
While its historic stature as a world leader is well known, today's Egypt remains the most influential Islamic Arab nation in the world. Rather than attempt a broad-brush summary of Egypt's past, the workshops provide essential background information for just a few relevant topics that ignited the interest of our study tour participants. The result is content and instruction modules making dynamic connections between past and present, useful in classrooms of art, world cultures, sociology, history, current events, and world religions.
