UClass features the “Crisis in Syria World Forum” Lesson

As a result of the events occurring in Syria, UClass is featuring the “Crisis in Syria World Forum” Lesson, and we are inviting your class to participate over the next few weeks. Created by one of our very own UClass teachers Ms. Robin Lerosen, the lesson challenges our global community to unite in reflection on what can be done to resolve this crisis. 

Students will follow 4 simple steps to complete this lesson:
  1. Read the included articles and/or view the multimedia links.
  2. Engage in discussion with classmates, family and friends about the recent events surrounding Syria.
  3. Write an editorial for a newspaper on what should be done about the crisis in Syria. Suggested length: at least one paragraph.
  4. Post to UClass and comment on the editorials of other students around the world.
Students will write an editorial for a newspaper about what should be done about the crisis in Syria. Teachers, engage your class in this riveting discussion by doing the following:
