Arab Contributions to World Knowledge: A Contemporary Curriculum Imperative
Al-Hazza, Tami Craft; Lucking, Robert
Multicultural Perspectives, v17 n1 p33-38 2015
American K-12 school curricula are often bereft of acknowledgements of the historical contributions of Arab societies to our present-day intellectual heritage, an oversight most apparent in the sciences. Teachers in a thriving democracy are obliged to introduce contemporary scholarship that reflects the contributions of Arab scientists between the period of 850 and 1200 in the larger area of the Middle East. This article illuminates significant Arab scientists in history and offers appropriate resources for the K-12 classroom. Additional Readings and Resources for Educators are provided.
