The past year has been one of increasing death and hardship for the people of Syria. I thought it would be useful if I started a “The Best…” list that might be useful for teachers and students. I’m starting it with just a few resources, but I’m sure I’ll be adding to it quickly. Feel free to offer suggestions.

You might also be interested in these other previous “The Best…” lists, some which include Syria resources:
