Educational Resources

The MESP at UW-Madison offers a wide range of useful resources, lectures, and outreach activities to students, faculty, K-12 educators and the Madison community, that reflect the diverse nature of the Middle East and North Africa, for a better understanding of the socio-economic, political, historical, and cultural realities of this rich region and its connections to the global context. Please see below for useful links, lesson plans and free materials for teachers, an outstanding audio-visual lending library of feature films and documentaries, and much more on the Middle East and the Islamic world.
