Resource Supplement of Student Materials for Six Teaching Units for Secondary Schools.
Livonia Public Schools, MI.
This materials package supplements a high school level social studies curriculum unit on Arab American culture and the contributions of Arabs to development of the United States (SO 012 253). The duplicated materials are presented in six categories--the family, geography of the Middle East, Arab history and its contribution to the West, immigration, Islam, and economic/political issues including Arab/Israeli conflicts and oil. Materials include maps, charts, background information, literary selections, film directories, bibliographic annotations, worksheets, vocabulary sheets, case studies, and discussion questions. In the table of contents for each category, entries are coded according to whether the materials are presented in duplicated form in the section or whether they need to be purchased, borrowed, or rented by the school. Emphasis is placed on presenting information about the diversity of the Arab world and on eliminating stereotypic images of Arab history, culture, politics, and behavior. (DB)
