2006 Summer Institute: Arab American Family Immigration Sagas: Teachers Institutes in the Humanities

This project, "Arab American Family Immigration Sagas" aims to convene a summer institute of Ohio high school teachers that will help to open up a dialogue to assist concerned teachers in understanding the challenges their new (or newly noticed) student populations face and in teaching more effectively about the Arab world to non-Arab students, but also to help teachers find ways to involve Arab and Muslim students in the dialogue. The purpose of the course is not to share information about Arabs or Muslims "over there," but here in our midst, their experience, in all its complexity, of being American.
