Eraqi, Monica M.
Multicultural Perspectives, v17 n2 p93-98 2015
Arab-Americans and Muslim-Americans live within the United States surrounded by misconceptions about their culture and religion, in part because of the limited inclusion of positive contributions by these groups within the social studies curriculum. This article attempts to highlight Arab-American and Muslim-American contributions within the U.S. and around the world. The purpose is to provide resources that help give a more balanced perspective of these groups.
