Teachers' Resources on the Middle East.
American Arab Anti Discrimination Committee, Washington, DC.
This document lists resources and suppliers for teachers who want to obtain balanced and accurate resources for teaching about Arab culture. The Arab-American community provides a wealth of personal experience and expertise. There is no more effective teaching aid than first hand accounts of major historical events, sharing a taste of Arabic home cooking, playing live Arabic music, or modeling Arabic fashions. American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) members in over 70 chapters across the country have participated in school and university cultural festivals and taken part in teacher training seminars. The organization offers information on discrimination against and stereotyping of Arabs and on the Middle East conflict. Items listed provide background on Arabs and the American Arab heritage and culture. Other resources are listed under the individual organizations that provide them. Listed resources include maps, atlases, lesson plans, supplementary reading materials, and posters. The booklet is divided into four sections. The first lists organizations with addresses, brief descriptions of the purposes and goals of the group, and the resources that each offers. The second section lists publishers, the third periodicals, and the fourth audio visual sources for films, videos, and workshop kit. In addition, a list of university related Middle East outreach programs is included at the end. This list gives the university, the institute name, contact person, address, and telephone number for each program. (DK)
