On November 13, coordinated shootings and explosions rocked Paris late in the evening, killing 130 people and leaving another 351 injured. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks, referencing France's role in air strikes against the group in Syria and Iraq. In the wake of the attacks, we have seen a great deal of scapegoating of Syrian refugees as well as people who are Muslim. This lesson provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the Paris attacks and understand the ways in which Muslim people and Syrian refugees are being scapegoated after the terrorist attacks.
