In my Arabic 201 class students had to create a story as a final project.

They had to come-up with their own story (or to translate a story), put it in a book format and do the drawing and the illustrations. Below are some examples:

Arabic 201 – Poster presentations

One of the projects that my students in  Arabic 201 class were asked to work on this semester (Fall 2013) is to do research about a topic that they choose and then to create a poster and present and discuss it in class (below are the posters.)

Capture

The first poster (Kimberly Guillen & Maryam Laly) is about “Mohammad Assaf”. He was the winner of the second season of “Arab Idol”.

The second poster (Fulya Eroglu & Geneva Pond) is about the difference in food between Damascus and Aleppo.

The third poster (Spencer Nelson & Germain Choiniere) is about the Arab Spring. They talked about four countries: Egypt, Syria, Tunisia & Lybia.

The fourth poster (Matthew Dudley) is about his experience in Grenada last summer and about the influence of Islam there.

Arabian Night 2013

The “Arabian Night” that took place on Monday December 3rd was a success!  About 40 students, who are studying Arabic language, attended it. This event included Powerpoint presentations about different traditions and cultures related to the Arab world, and a “tabla” performance.

For this event, students had to prepare Arabic dishes. They did an excellent job, everything was delicious!
