Front and center of tomorrow's society – learn smarter, teach harder
The following is a glimpse into my classroom. I am glad that I am now compelled to organize my work portfolio because I am a documentarian of my classroom but have not taken a dedicated amount of time to organize what I document. This year, I was inspired by Sheikh Mohammed’s efforts to increase reading amongst Arabs. According to a research study performed by the Arab Thought Foundation, Arab youth on average only read 6 minutes per year compared to their “Western” counterparts’ 12,000! Hence, I have designed and orchestrated an overarching reading program for my classroom and campus at large. I conducted professional development sessions, created online curriculum, and a started an online social media program to help foster a pro-reading (in English and Arabic) environment on campus. I experimented with a few new elements that I borrowed from my university and personal readings.
