    Students as Collaborative Curators: The Effect of World War I and its Aftermath In Turkey and the United States 1914-1923
    (The Middle East Studies Center at The Ohio State University, 2014-01-31) McClimans, Melinda; Schur, Joan Brodsky
    This learner-centered set of classroom activities centers around the experiences of World War I, both in the U.S. and in Turkey. Educators in both countries are calling attention to the need for greater teacher autonomy despite the increasingly controlling educational policies in both countries. In the summer of 2014 many nations will initiate commemorative events to mark the centennial of the world’s first global conflict, World War I, or "The Great War." We offer this module for stimulating critical thought, awareness of global perspectives, and authentic citizenship education, both national and global.
