This curriculum project on the cultures of the Middle Eastern countries of Israel and Jordan stresses the language arts and focuses on objectives for elementary-age students to attain. The project states that children will: locate, list, identify, label, demonstrate, research, organize, compose, conference, rewrite, proofread, rewrite again, illustrate, create, read, perform, guess, select, participate, invite, encourage, coordinate, videotape, enjoy, publish, write, decide, round, practice, define, compare, design, classify, locate, memorize, learn, and teach diverse projects and materials about Israel and Jordan. The curriculum project notes that the objectives can go "on and on" with activities for children and offers suggestions for materials. It stipulates that children will write "haiku" poems based on everything they have learned about Israel/Jordan for evaluation purposes (examples of haiku poetry are included). (BT)
