While I was doing my outreach presentations I have been met with a lot of questions about everyday life in the Arab world in general and Egypt in particular. That's why I would like to organize an Arabic fair at Tomah High School. I propose to do it in the library during the school day. classes will take turns to come to the library to see some everyday activities from the Arab world. My students of Arabic one and Arabic two will be wearing Arabic clothes and manning booths to conduct conversations and perform scenes from a normal Arabic day. The topic to be covered will include food, music, going shopping, Arabic festivals and favorite pass time activities in the Arab world. Arabic music and songs will be playing the whole time and the show will end by an Arabic song performed by me and my students. I propose to hold this fair by mid February.
