More than 7 million Syrians have been forced from their homes and more than 400,000 people have lost their lives in years of armed conflict, which began with protests against the government of President Bashar al-Assad and have escalated into a civil war.

This site developed by a professor in the Seattle area provides very interesting resources to deal with the issue in the English language classroom.
