The Middle East Institute Resource Guide for Teachers.
Fix, Jerrold E.
Abstracts and evaluations of over 50 instructional and resource materials related to the Middle East are presented in the resource guide. The guide is intended for use by elementary and secondary school social studies classroom teachers as they seek information about availability and potential uses of resources dealing with the Middle East. Four categories of materials are reviewed--filmstrips, films, textbooks, and supplementary materials. Topics of filmstrips include the impact of oil, village life, contributions of Arab civilization, Islam, role of Arab states in the modern world, monuments of Egypt, and nomads of the Sahara. Film topics include Islam, Israel, modern family life, third world problems, and land and water usage. Books reviewed include a handbook for teachers and students on the Arab world, a picture book on the Arab states, and a world cultures text. Supplementary materials are a teacher's handbook and directory for the "Traditional World of Islam" film series. For each entry, information is presented on title, editor or producer, address, description of components, evaluative comments, synopsis, and suggestions to the teacher on how the material might be used.
