K-12 Resources

The Middle East Center offers K-12 educators and the Philadelphia community access to a range of useful resources. Our outreach activities reflect the diverse nature of the Middle East, and cover a wide array of religions, languages, civilizations, countries, and contemporary issues in the region. We are available to cater to the needs and interests of educators, the media, religious congregations, and the general public.

Please see below for useful links, lesson plans and free materials for teachers, an outstanding audio-visual lending library of feature films and documentaries, websites of embassies and media, and much more on the Middle East and the Islamic world.
