he Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The study traces the roots of the controversy, recounts contentious interaction with the public, and examines problematic materials used in the course. The study also examines materials used to teach about Islam in a 9th grade World History course.Much of the material used to teach about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was pulled from the Internet and reflected questionable journalistic reporting rather than historical scholarship. Students were given an account that was riddled with errors and omitted crucial historical information and context. Items used to teach about Islam tended to be simplistic and evasive when discussing controversial topics relating to women and minorities in Muslim society.The use of the World History course to acquaint students with a contemporary issue raises questions about what safeguards are needed for teaching current events in a history class. While teachers should be able to select materials for their classes, the increasing reliance on materials from the Internet, many of which are inadequately vetted, opens the classroom to fringe perspectives and groups promoting political agendas.The monograph offers recommendations on what parents, teachers, and other concerned citizens can do to address the problem of substandard and biased materials in schools.
