Global Connections: The Middle East "integrates and contextualizes the rich body of public broadcasting resources to provide a global and historical perspective that will help teachers, students, and the general public explore and understand seminal events of national and international significance." To that end, there is an exhaustive amount of material related to economics, stereotypes, and the role of women in the Middle East, along with a detailed Middle East timeline. Educators will also find that the site will be a good source of information to use in the classroom. The "Connecting Questions" offers perspectives and lesson plans on six large scale questions affecting the Middle East. The site is rounded out by an interactive sociopolitical map of the region.
