Russia's War in Syria: Assessing Russian Military Capabilities and Lessons Learned
Education Program at FPRI
In 2019, FPRI launched a new initiative that focuses on teaching critical thinking skills through historical inquiry in high school classrooms. Our goal is to create a World History curriculum that can expand students’ capacity for critical and independent thinking and competent democratic citizenship. Alongside the curriculum, we are developing a professional development program to support teaching of the curriculum in diverse school settings in the Philadelphia region.
FIE 2020 was born out of lessons learned from the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As Russia, Iran and China habitually use state media apparatuses to publish propaganda, the project seeks to understand the general thrust of such efforts and assess the magnitude of any overt or subtle election influence efforts they contain.
