As U.S. involvement with Iraq continues, Rethinking Schools presents this special collection of articles and resources for classroom teachers.

This section includes materials that focus specifically on Iraq, as well as articles that address the more general issues of armed conflict and society's priorities.

We will be updating this section as the international situation develops, so check back.

If you would like to contribute a lesson plan, student handout, or other resource to this collection, please send it to the Rethinking Schools editors in care of Bob Peterson, repmilw@aol.com.
