My capstone project is The Cultures’ Club. The club main objectives are to introduce the Moroccan culture besides the Middle East culture to my American host school staff and students. I will meet the interested students and club members on a regular basis so as to  share different presentations and workshops about the different aspects of Morocco’s culture and the cultures of other Middle East countries  such as Egypt , Syria , and Palestine .

Middle East Children's Books

Host School

For this project, students wrote and illustrated their own non-fiction children’s picture book about history, religion, culture, and lifestyles of a country of your their choice in the Middle East. The books were then read all around the school to younger grade levels and students of those classes were also taught how to introduce themselves and greet in Arabic. The books were finally displayed in the school library.

Host School

Project title: Romeo & Juliet meets Layla and Majnun. As a project we will create a short shadow puppet video where students will act out parts of Romeo and Juliet and Layla and Majnun as thought to showcase both cultures. We were also joined with a visual artist from the Flock Theater (theater artists) and Alicia Cobb (visual artist) to help students bring it to life and work on the artwork with the students. The play was recorded and showcased on the morning announcements.
