Video Update on the Umm el-Jimal (Jordan) Educational Curriculum

Umm el-Jimal Project team members give an update about the educational curriculum they are putting together as part of an AIA Site Preservation grant.  The curriculum will be available in English and Arabic and is being developed in partnership with the Jordanian Ministry of Education for implementation in Jordanian government schools.  The goal for the Umm el-Jimal Project in creating this curriculum is to bridge the gap between the ruins at Umm el-Jimal and the people of today.
