Teaching Geography: Workshop 4
North Africa / Southwest Asia
Programs and Activities: Part 1. Israel
Getting Ready 1 (15 minutes)
Site Leader: Please divide participants into two groups for this activity. Keep track of the time as participants move through the different five-minute sections of this activity.
Divide into two groups. Each group will be negotiating for control of half the meeting space. Each group has five minutes to decide which areas it wants (and why) and to select three representatives to negotiate. The six representatives will have three to five minutes to negotiate their "land deal." Then spend the remaining time (approximately five minutes) discussing the exercise as a group. What factors influenced your selection of desired space? How did negotiations proceed?
Be thinking of the factors influencing conflict and cooperation in the division of space as you watch the video program.
