By end of the units Novice level learners will be able to do basic tasks, such as, identifying characters and events and presenting in culturally appropriate manner while Intermediate students will pair and share, compare and contrast information with their own experiences and ideas in USA. Our instructors will receive program specific professional development training under the guidance of a pedagogy expert and a K-8 literacy expert in the pre-program period. A structured post-program follow up plan will be implemented to help students sustain and improve their skills.

    Summary

    ALEFE summer program “Celebrations of Arab Nations” is a 22 days summer camp intended to allow twenty heritage and non-heritage students to develop both their communication skills in Arabic and their cultural awareness about the Arab world. In a Montessori classroom set-up, students will be exposed to the various ways in which Arab nations celebrate three special occasions: weddings, mother’s day and baby showers. They will acquire new knowledge about the way these special occasions are celebrated in terms of food, costumes, social figures and family traditions. Through the study of the three celebrations, the program is to allow K-2nd grade students with limited or no proficiency in Arabic to interact using simple vocabulary and sentences to communicate with an authentic audience and to use their new acquired knowledge to create and present three mock celebrations themselves to others. Following the program’s 90 hours of instructions, students will be able not only to compare the similarities and differences between cultural practices in the US and in the Arab World, but to also realize how internally diverse an apparently monolithic culture could be.
