NEH Unit Plans

NEH Unit Plans

Participants of the 2016 Central Asia in World History developed a final unit plan based on their research during the Summer Institute. These unit plans were developed based on the subjects and interests of the teachers, and in consultation with the Director, Dr. Scott Levi, and master teacher, Bobbie Mucha. Below they are available for viewing and download to assist other teachers who wish to teach more about Central Asia.
