This is a collection of maps seeking to “explain” the Middle East. Maps run the gamut from historical maps revealing plans to break up the Ottoman empire to detailed mapping of ethnic groups in the Middle East. Teachers can allow students to read the paragraph interpreting each map, or click on the map to isolate the image and encourage students to perform their own analysis. These maps can also be used to demonstrate what we can learn from maps in terms of not just physical but also human geography. >
