Lesson Plan Ideas for the Protests in Iran

June 26th, 2009 by Dave · No Comments

I’ve been pretty busy at work the past couple of weeks, so I’ve got a backlog of things I want to post, but I wanted to quickly share a bunch of resources that I’ve found for teaching about the protests in Iran.

As usual, Larry Ferlazzo has pulled together a lot of great links in his list of The Best Sites For Learning About The Protests In Iran. There is a lot of information on these sites, including a lot of photos, videos and slideshows.

I also found a good collection of articles on the World 727 email list:

Iran’s Supreme Leader silences the oppositionby Farhang Jahanpour
Iran’s stolen elections, and what comes next by Farhang Jahanpour
Are the Iranian protests another US orchestrated “Color Revolution”? by Paul Craig Roberts
Are you ready for war with a demonized Iran? by Paul Craig Roberts
The Iranian elections and the faith-based media by Anthony DiMaggio
Why U.S. neocons want Ahmedinejad to win by Stephen Zunes
The Iranian uprising is homegrown, and must star that way by Stephen Zunes

Finally, this collection of Top 10 Protest Symbols from Time Magazine starts with a screen capture of Neda Agha-Soltan and includes a variety of other protest images. Some of the images are a bit hard to stomach, but perhaps it would be OK with adults or older students.

If you develop any lesson plans on this that you’d like to share, I’d love to see them.
