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.

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.

Since there is a very effective and successful Arabic program in my school, I needed something new that attracts more students and give them real experiences that land them on the Arab world. I thought of the idea of creating an Arab club which is responsible for everything relates to the Arab culture. In this club we offer materials such as: books, clothes, jewelry, perfumes, pottery, accessories, paintings...etc that tell us many things about the Arabs and their lives. All of these things are with a full description and details about its history and why and how it is used. This club also provides some educational materials like: stories and movies that encourage students to learn without even noticing that they are learning. this club is also open for all not only Arabic language learners. All are welcome. I also worked on some curriculum development through giving more handouts and sheets to apply more strategies in the lessons given.

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

The project is about Chinese New Year Celebration for the students, teachers, parents, faculty and community members and guests. From a series of activities, like lectures, assemblies, cross- culture fair, and Chinese Club, the people in the community will get a basic understanding and full engagement of Chinese Culture. The idea is to spread the knowledge and understanding of Chinese Culture, history and traditionas as well as the language to the community at large in order to increase people’s interest in Chinese Culture and Language Learning. Some follow-up activities are to create a Chinese Program that will continue and progress yearly. The project will focus on the activities in Plantation Middle School and further the capstone project activities in elementary schools and high schools. The immediate goals of the proposed project are to let the students in Plantation Middle School to know about the Chinese New Year and further some Chinese Traditional Festivals. In this way, they will understand the people from different cultures will have different behaviors, less misunderstanding, more mutual understanding. The long-term goals of the proposed project are to let the parents, faculties, people in the community know Chinese New Year and further some Chinese Traditional Festivals. In this way, the students can raise their levels of education attainment, emphasizing international knowledge, skills, language acquisition, and fostering respect from other cultures.
