Teaching about the Middle East in Elementary Schools.
Marek, Rosanne J.
Indiana Social Studies Quarterly, v36 n1 p67-79 Spr 1983
Most elementary teachers are inadequately prepared to teach about the Middle East. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that elementary texts dehumanize Middle Eastern peoples by reducing them to mere caricatures. Needed are the involvement of Middle Eastern studies experts in writing textbooks and the improvement of teacher's manuals. (RM)
