This project seeks to incorporate web site technologies into the course, "Introduction to Arab American Studies" by developing a course web site and requiring students to contribute to the course web site. The course web site will include materials on Arab Americans such as archival documents and photos; video clips; demographic data; recorded public lectures; and art. Students will be asked to contribute to the course web site throughout the semester. The course will culminate in a final project in which students will work in groups to produce an on-line magazine on a particular topic, such as "Arab Americans in Dearborn"; "Gender and Family among Arab Americans"; and "The Impact of September 11th on Arab Americans."
