Supports the national curriculum standards Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; People, Places, and Environments; Individuals, Groups, and Institutions; Power, Authority, and Governance; Production, Distribution, and Consumption; Science Technology and Society; and Global Connections as outlined by the National Council for the Social Studies. The Kurds are a non-Arab Middle Eastern minority population that can be found in Turkey, Iran, and Iraq, with smaller communities in Syria, Azerbaijan, and Armenia.

Despite their lack of a nation, the Kurds have had a lasting impact on the development of the countries they live in.
