Capstone Project
2 days 16 hours ago
This project is to create a shared resource space to help the teachers, students and school community appreciate the diversity that is within our cultures, while recognizing we all have shared commonalities. The project could foster a multicultural library for our school- providing resources across themes of various texts that are represented across languages, culture folktales and representative of modalities of storytelling- books, videos, songs, holidays, etc. We could offer the entire school community access to texts across languages and various resources to represent the cultures of our school. We include songs, videos, movies and create various clubs that utilize the materials- world cultures club- allowing students to be exposed to different cultures and learning about the mandarin culture.

My Capstone Project is divided into two parts, I collaborated with my TCLP colleague to set Art Station at Family Fun Night of Steam at my host school to introduce our program and both of the Chinese and the Egyptian cultures.Families and students had fun learning about the Egyptian culture and the parents helped their kids making their own Ancient Egyptian wigs and collars, they also had the chance to have their names written in both Arabic and Chinese.Some students built a pyramid and others enjoyed taking pictures using the Pharaoh's maquette. It was a great chance to organize an Arabic Club in the second quarter of the year to help the students learn more about the Egyptian culture and the Arabic language.They enjoyed playing games, singing songs and watching videos. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qc6aPVzwcWJHtqVMaxr3xVO5pyl8VAMj

My Capstone project that I am thinking about is a Kids Arabic Club that can be held in the Library targeting young children to give them interesting materials by which they can have a taste of Arabic language through songs and games and activities to make them excited and interested to study Arabic at school and it is a volunteering work that could encourage parents to bring their children and I can leave this materials for whoever is interested to continue doing this in the future.

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.

My capstone is actually my CLP,which is a Chinese local fair.I had intended to hold it in March,but we had spring festival and too many snow days in February,so we didn't have enough time to get everything ready for it.And now we are busy with every detail to make sure it will be successfully held on April 26.So far, we have taken a field trip to MIA to help as many as possible students to have a general visual idea of what Chinese culture is like.Besides,I appointed 6 students to be directors of each section of the fair.They are responsible for food, calligraphy,dancing,martial arts,papercutting,sports.To make sure their sections will be popular, they are learning to dance, play Taichi and so on these days.And they have finished the posters and flyers for promoting their activities. Two weeks later, they will go on field trip to a Chinese buffet to learn about Chinese cuisines and learn to make dumplings.
