Our content specialist, Dr. Terri Fine, is a wonderful resource for teachers in this state and beyond on issues concerning civic education. However, Dr. Fine has also made it a priority to provide content-oriented professional development connected to history and foreign policy, particularly on modern Israel. She recommends the Institute for Curriculum Services: National Resource Center for Accurate Jewish Content in Schools and has asked to share the following opportunity for professional development around the Arab-Israeli Conflict and the Peace Process. This is a free PD opportunity!

The Institute for Curriculum Services, in collaboration with the Library of Congress and Portland State University, invites middle and high school social studies teachers to attend a dynamic 3-day workshop, Teaching the Arab-Israeli Conflict and Peace Process.
