        This Way Up

Classrooms can use this resource group to examine the impact of the security barrier on everyday life and to deepen their understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

        This Way Up: Sneaking Over the Wall (Clip 1 of 2)

        In the first clip associated with the This Way Up lesson plan, a woman and a storekeeper watch as people sneak over the security barrier in the West Bank. At the end of the clip, Israeli soldiers appear to arrest a man who has just snuck over the barrier. Students should take notes on how the security barrier is affecting the lives of those in the film and discuss whether the wall will lead to greater peace between Israelis and Palestinians when it is completed, or provoke further conflict.
