TCLP Arabic teacher Bishoy Demian at Burlington Notre Dame in Burlington, IA applied for a CLP grant to support his visits to his distance learning students and to conduct Arabic Club meetings with non Arabic students at these schools. Over 40 students attended multiple Arabic Club meetings at Notre Dame High School and Tipton High School, exposing non Arabic students to the Arabic language and culture and giving current students an further opportunities to practice the language they learned in Mr. Demian’s distance learning classes. Mr. Demian was able to share books and authentic materials with the students he visited in person, and he expanded their awareness of language focused careers and study by organizing a field trip to the University of Iowa to attend a college-level Arabic course and speak with university students and professors.
