What Students Should Know About the War on Terrorism

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /websites/teachinghistory/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

Edward Turzanski of the Foreign Policy Research Institute attempts to sum up what students should be taught about the War on Terrorism, in order to prepare students to critically analyze world events and plan for and anticipate future events. He suggests that the languages of cultures beyond the Spanish-speaking and Western European world and world geography need to be more widely taught.
