Event Details

WILL

Illinois Public Media is looking for 20 middle school and high school social studies and language arts teachers to participate in a conversation about Arab Americans and brainstorm ways to use a new public television video series in their classrooms.

Illinois has the 7th-largest population of Arab Americans in the country, yet many non-Arabs know little about them. The series can be used to help your students increase their understanding of Arab American history, culture, diversity and contributions to society. We’ll watch an episode of Arab American Stories and discuss ways in which you could involve your students in the content. Sample lesson plans will be provided as well as a description of the entire series and additional resources for teachers. 

And, did we mention, we will serve you dinner with dessert?  Call Kimberlie Kranich, WILL Engagement Director, 217-244-5072, with your questions.

Park for free anywhere in the parking lot off Clark Street  behind our building.  Walk to the Goodwin St. entrance (front doors) and enter the lobby.  Conference room is to your left.


This program is sponsored by Detroit Public Television with programming support from Borderline Media and funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Organizer

Arab American Stories

Led by Detroit Public Television (WTVS-TV), “Arab American Stories – A National Dialogue” encourages local PBS stations, as well as other community partners around the country, such as library systems, to host events, forums and dialogues to increase public understanding of Arab American history, culture, diversity and contributions to society. The outreach program is based on the 13-part public television series Arab American Stories that features stories of Arab Americans of all walks of life to put a human face on the Arab American experience. Funding for “Arab American Stories – A National Dialogue” was provided through a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
