The World at Your Fingerprints!
Zohni, Hebatallah
Intercultural Education, v22 n5 p445-448 2011
The author was teaching Arabic and Translation to 16-year-old students in a French-Egyptian school in Cairo, Egypt during a full academic year. It was the first time that the school had offered this compulsory course. There were quite some challenges: first the students were teenagers so grabbing their attention for a language class was not the easiest task on earth! They probably would have preferred to play sports or even hang out with their friends! Plus this course was offered for the first time and so expectations about the content, the objectives and results were not easy to figure out for both the instructor and students. In this article, the author discusses five major elements that turned her class into some kind of magical experience: (1) instructor; (2) students; (3) objectives; (4) results; and (5) feedback. In order to make this clearer, she will give concrete examples for each component. (Contains 1 figure.)
