Since there is a very effective and successful Arabic program in my school, I needed something new that attracts more students and give them real experiences that land them on the Arab world. I thought of the idea of creating an Arab club which is responsible for everything relates to the Arab culture. In this club we offer materials such as: books, clothes, jewelery, perfumes, pottery, accessories, paintings...etc that tell us many things about the Arabs and their lives. All of these things are with a full description and details about its history and why and how it is used. This club also provides some educational materials like: stories and movies that encourage students to learn without even noticing that they are learning. this club is also open for all not only Arabic language learners. All are welcome.

When I asked my students what do you know about Egypt, they told me about Ancient Egypt and the Pharaohs and they don’t know about Egypt now.I tried to tell them about Egypt through a culture lesson and as we have a library at our school, I checked it to see the kind of books they have about Egypt and I found most of the books are about the Ancient Egyptians and there is only one or two books about Egypt now, so I am thinking of bringing new books about Egypt now.I also can collaborate with my school to make an Arabic fun night for all the families and their kids; it will be a public invitation to introduce the Arabic language and culture for them with the help of the Arabic families and it will be a great chance to ask some people from the district to come as we work to show the district that there truly is a need and an academic benefit of learning a language like Arabic as my school is the only one in the district that teach Arabic.It will be a great chance to motivate other schools apply for TCLP grant.

Most People in the valley do not know anything about the TCLP or the Arabic class. I was planning through the Arabic club to raise awareness and advertise the program. It is for other members in the community. I plan to make it for all people, students or parents or others. This Club will reach people outside school. Meeting will be held in different places every time. Some students may help me with it. I will introduce sessions about Arabic Language and Egyptian culture. some topics may include: food, clothing, history, inventions and other topics related to Arab and Egyptian Culture.

The project is about Chinese New Year Celebration for the students, teachers, parents, faculty and community members and guests. From a series of activities, like lectures, assemblies, cross- culture fair, and Chinese Club, the people in the community will get a basic understanding and full engagement of Chinese Culture. The idea is to spread the knowledge and understanding of Chinese Culture, history and traditionas as well as the language to the community at large in order to increase people’s interest in Chinese Culture and Language Learning. Some follow-up activities are to create a Chinese Program that will continue and progress yearly. The project will focus on the activities in Plantation Middle School and further the capstone project activities in elementary schools and high schools. The immediate goals of the proposed project are to let the students in Plantation Middle School to know about the Chinese New Year and further some Chinese Traditional Festivals. In this way, they will understand the people from different cultures will have different behaviors, less misunderstanding, more mutual understanding. The long-term goals of the proposed project are to let the parents, faculties, people in the community know Chinese New Year and further some Chinese Traditional Festivals. In this way, the students can raise their levels of education attainment, emphasizing international knowledge, skills, language acquisition, and fostering respect from other cultures.

I divided my capstone project to three parts: 1-Henna tattoos party The first part is An afternoon Henna tattoo party open to students and faculty at LHS with the objective of introducing the henna traditions in Morocco. The audience goes through different sections to learn about the Henna Plant : Cawsonia Inermisn, its tree: the mignonette, look at samples of dried Henna leaves and the Henna powder... the exchange teacher introduces the material used as well as the tattoo styles and significance of the signs then the audience watches a documentary about bridal Henna traditions in Morocco before choosing their own tattoos and applying Henna. 2-The second part is another afternoon party with Moroccan traditional attire and food tasting as themes. The most famous Moroccan salads, main dishes and deserts are chosen to be prepared and presented to the audience with explanatory videos about the ingredients and preparation before the tasting.The guests also participate in a Moroccan tea preparation workshop and are offered a variety of Moroccan dresses to try and take photos in. 3-Equipe the school and library with material for teaching the Arabic script and books in Arabic.

On the night of February 8, I, together with another two Chinese teachers in the school district, held the Chinese New Year Celebration at Buxton Center Elementary School. There were different activities in the celebration. In the crafts section, kids made piggy lanterns and piggy pencil holders, and tried paper cutting. In the culture section, people learned to use chopsticks, wrote with calligraphy brushes and colored Lunar New Year pictures. We also set up two tables to play ping pong. Kids loved that. My students sang Happy New Year in Chinese on the stage, without looking at the lyrics. I was so proud. Most importantly, we provided dumplings.
