Spotlight on the Muslim Middle East - Issues of Identity. A Student Reader [and] Teacher's Guide.
Greenberg, Hazel Sara, Ed.; Mahony, Liz, Ed.
These books offer primary source readings focusing on issues of identity and personality in the Middle East. Individual sections of the books examine a particular issue in personality development through the perspectives of Islamic religion and cultural tradition. The issues of identity include: (1) "Religion"; (2) "Community"; (3) "Ethnicity"; (4) "Nationalism"; and (5) "Gender." Unique to the teacher's guide are three essays that provide additional background information: (1) "Thinking about Identity" (Lila Abu Lughod); (2) "Muhammad, the Qur'an and Muslim Identity" (Frank E. Peters); and (3) "Identity and the Literacy Context" (Mona N. Mikhail). Insights and strategies are offered in the teacher's guide to accompany the student readings. Appended materials in the teacher's guide include: a student worksheet on religion, eight teacher readings, and 26 references. The student reader contains maps of the Muslim world. (EH)
