Middle East Center Teacher Training Workshop on Migration 

On July 10, 2017 the Middle East Center organized a successful teacher training workshop on Migration in partnership with Center for Civic Responsibility and Leadership at Camden County College and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. Twenty-two teachers from various school districts in New Jersey participated in this daylong workshop. Mr. Nimrod Ben-Zeev (Department of History) and Dr. Salam al-Kuntar (Penn Museum Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Archeology) from the University of Pennsylvania and Robin Shulman (Freelance Journalist based in NYC) and Fareed Mostoufi (Senior Education Manager at the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting) gave presentations about various aspects of migration and discussed how they can be addressed in the classroom. The teachers had a chance to engage with the presenters during Q&A sessions after each presentation. Participating teachers will be receiving NJ Professional Development credit.
