My capstone project is to establish a sister school partnership between my host school in the US and my home school back in Egypt. STEM school is the school I work in back there in my home country and it is well known by its interest in teaching languages. This relation between My students here and back there in my country is going to open both students horizons and widen their scopes about understanding each other's cultures and different languages. It not only benefits language learning, but also broadens student’s minds by visiting or talking with people from another culture, which helps them to be global citizens. Regarding administrators, it helps them to have a glance at another educational system, to learn from their good points, and reflect on their own practice to make adjustment to be better. Before I departed, my home school had shown great interest in having a sister school in the US and arranged a Skype session with my school here to show our sincerity and welcome. I discussed that with language teachers in Roosevelt High School, who showed their willingness to establish the relationship. As planned. We will arrange sessions through Skype to help our students communicate and interact with each other.

Most People in the valley do not know anything about the TCLP or the Arabic class. I had a year long plan to showcase the program and the Arabic language and culture to everyone in the valley. Accordingly, I followed a plan that included many actions and events: First, I created collaborative classes with other teachers to raise awareness for students at my school. So, I planned different outreaches: 1- An outreach with Cosmetology teacher in which I introduced the history of cosmetics in Egypt. 2- An outreach with the forensic science teacher on the mummification process in ancient Egypt. 3- Two outreaches in the library that introduced The Hijri year and the Tanura Dance tradition. 4- An outreach teaching students the origin of papyrus and how it was made in ancient Egypt. 5- A cooking event in which I collaborated with the food science teacher and taught students how to cook two different Arabian dishes. The event included a fashion show in which the students displayed traditional Egyptian clothing. It also included a belly dance show and the school orchestra played an Arabian piece of music. 6- My extended outreach that was a series of presentations in Spanish classes to introduce the similarities between ancient Egypt and ancient Mexico. Also, they could identify the similarities between Arabic and Spanish Languages. Other outreaches were held at different classes for the sake of raising the awareness of studying new Arabic language and learning about different cultures. Secondly: I created the Arabic Club in which I ran different events for people from the community. In my club, I introduced the program, the culture and the Arabic language.It was for other members in the community. I planed to make it for all people, students or parents or others. This Club reached people outside school. Meetings were held in different places every time. Some students helped me with it. I introduced sessions about Arabic Language and Egyptian culture. some topics included: food, clothing, history, inventions and other topics related to Arab and Egyptian Culture. Thirdly: I conducted a series of school visits to introduce the program to students from other feeder schools. It included visits to high, middle and lower schools. Fourthly: I get my class involved in two projects: A museum at the end of the fist semester, and a display during the second semester. Both projects enabled all of the school students and teachers to explore the history and culture of Egypt. I was planning through the Arabic club to raise awareness and advertise the program. Finally our school participated in the international week. Students made different presentations on: The Arabic language, ancient and modern Egypt, Inventions and other projects. We had the chance to win a trophy for the best high school participation in the international week.

My project is divided into two parts: Chinese New Year Gala and Chinese New Year Food which takes place on Feb.7 and Feb 10. The Chinese New Year Gala consists of 9 performances where I include the most typical Chinese cultural elements and demonstrate students’ Chinese language skills at the same time. For the food part, I ordered authentic Chinese food in the restaurant and invite teachers and students to share the food. With posters presenting what food would be seen on the dinner table in China during this festive occasion and what symbolic meaning each food item has, the participants definitely have a clearer picture of the festival and helps to trigger their passion about Chinese culture. Word spread about my gala and people talk about it for a long time. They’ve never had this kind of performance before and the first year of this kind of show in the history of World Language Department really gives it a special touch and people are super impressed.

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.

The two Chinese clubs in the two feeder middle school can really bring a lot interests to students to take Chinese. Many students who sign up for the club may take Chinese classes when they get into high school. It will increase the energy, enthusiasm and excitement around the students to take Chinese. In the club we will do: Celebrate Chinese holidays Learn about Chinese culture Learn basic Chinese language Do Chinese art such as Calligraphy and painting, paper cutting, mask making, etc Play Chinese games Learn Chinese songs and dances The teaching resources and materials will be saved for next year teacher who can continue doing this club, which I believe will be great helpful and save a lot of time and energy for the future.

Capstone Project: Abstract : (Arabic Corner in the Library) When I arrived in Leicester Middle school, I went to the library looking for Arabic books or Arabic instructional Aids to help me in creating my lesson plans. I found none. The school has a large library but no Arabic books, bilingual dictionaries or books for teaching or learning Arabic as a foreign language. My idea is to establish an Arabic corner for students and staff members who want to know more about the Arabic language and culture.
