Register for in-person or virtual attendance

Please join the Arab American National Museum and the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) and the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University for a half-day, hybrid professional development workshop.  The workshop invites educators to hear from fellow Arab American educators and authors on how to incorporate Arab American voices and perspectives in the classroom curriculum. The workshop will be held in person at AANM; virtual attendees are also welcome to register for a Zoom link.

Featured speakers include Reem Kassis, award-wining author of We Are Palestinian: A Celebration of Culture and Tradition, and The Palestinian Table. Attendees will receive copies of the books, along with a lesson plan around the books. Teachers will learn of a variety of free educational resources.

This workshop allows educators to gain access to unique educational resources, network with fellow educators and enhance their knowledge about the Arab American community. A Middle Eastern lunch will be served.

This workshop is made possible by a Title VI grant from the United States Department of Education, which is funding National Resource Center on the Middle East and North Africa at Georgetown University’s Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and with additional funding from the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown.
