Literature from the Modern Middle East: Making a Living Connection
Webb, Allen
English Journal, v98 n3 p80-88 Jan 2009
While the United States is deeply involved in the Middle East, most Americans, including students, lack knowledge about the region. Yet from Afghanistan to Palestine, from Morocco to Iraq, there is a vibrant and exciting literature by living authors that can bring the diverse experiences and perspectives of this vital part of the world to classes. In this article, the author offers resources, ideas, and strategies that other English teachers can use to integrate Middle Eastern literature into their classes. (Contains 2 notes.)
