My current research interests include creative pedagogies in education, particularly poetry, drama in education, and storytelling. I am also interested in creative methods and techniques in teaching, learning and research.

The Israeli occupation and its strategies employed for controlling the Palestinian Territories have reflected negatively on all aspects of Palestinians’ lives.

This research illustrates the potential of using found poetry as a method of data analysis and representation in qualitative research.
The objective of this essay is to critically reflect on the inequalities, oppression and control in public schools with particular emphasis on the Palestinian context. I will argue that state’s schools are more like concentration centres and prison camps. The Palestinian “state”, on paper I would say, has been excluded and besieged by the State of Israel and the Palestinians are prisoned and controlled in prison-like cities and refugee camps. Ironically, since its establishment in 1994, the “Palestinian National Authority” has been trying to create a new reality, come into existence and controlling the Palestinian people’s lives in all spheres of life by acting as a state of exception. In context of Palestine, enslavement, oppression, control and humiliation in sate’s schools have not yet been explored, therefore this attempt will be the first of its kind.
