Participants will go back to school and pilot a lesson titled “What made Baghdad so remarkable 764- 1258CE?” I developed this teaching material as part of the Learning About (Y) our Past project organized by Euroclio, the European Association of History Teachers https://euroclio.eu/projects/learningabout-your-past/ . The learning activities developed as part of this project focus on learning about identity and diversity, positive intercultural encounters and addressing emotive and controversial issues in history education. The learning activities developed for this lesson also highlight the importance of bringing the History of the Arab/Islamic world into the center of our History classroom and out of the margins so students in the region can have a more developed and nuancedunderstanding of their past.

The learning activity could be used in Grades 9-12. They were developed with the IB in mind and can be easilyadapted for use in an IB classroom both for MYP and DP

The Goals :
- To discuss the importance of teaching Arab/Islamic History in IB classrooms
- To share and pilot History teaching materials
- To gain feedback on History teaching materials
