Jacqueline Regev is the Senior Curriculum Developer and Trainer for ICS. Jacqueline settled in the Bay Area to refine her practices as a classroom teacher, researcher, and teacher educator.

An interactive discussion will follow the lecture, providing educators with an opportunity to translate their learning into practice. The program will include opportunities to develop skills in identifying and assessing supplementary teaching materials that engage students that are historically and instructionally sound with special reference to the New York State Standards, the C3 Framework, and Common Core. Participants will receive a packet of recommended curricular resources designed to increase students’ critical thinking skills and their understanding of the multiple perspectives that exist in the Middle East. Audiovisual materials that complement the content will also be available.
