Curriculum and Peace in the Middle East.
Sheety, Alia
A study explored how Arabic literature textbooks for the seventh grade in Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Jordan, the West Bank, and Israel (for Arab schools only) deal with three topics: (1) land; (2) enemy; and (3) hero (in the era of peace). Results indicate that even though former studies provide information about the importance of transferring values to students through reading and school textbooks, in general, the textbooks ignore the peace process topic and focus on hostility toward the enemy. A suggestion is that an educational committee should work to develop a curriculum which deals with living in peace by indicating the similarities and trying to bridge differences between the nations and countries involved in the peace process. Includes three tables of data; contains nine references and two appendixes about textbook censorship and descriptions of the textbooks examined. (BT)
