The Portrayal of Women in Israeli Arabic Textbooks on Druse Heritage
Falah, Janan Faraj
Online Submission, US-China Education Review A v3 n1 p33-37 Jan 2013
Teaching heritage to a nation is important. The Israeli Arab curriculum on Druse heritage helps students connect religion with modern society. The textbooks that are still used were written in the end of the 1970s and do not reflect the changing reality of Druse women. This research shows that women must be portrayed in more diverse roles in textbooks and there must be more articles written by women. If teachers are to prepare pupils for the future, they must have more current material. If not, teachers have the obligation to model new ways of seeing women so that young Druse women can achieve equality in work and education and lead modern lives, and so that young men will accept and encourage their advancements.
