This section of the Middle Eastern American Resources Online (MEARO) website provides precollegiate teaching materials and educational resources about Middle Eastern Americans. Three instructional modules are featured to date. The first focuses on the early immigration of Arabs to the United States from the 1880s to 1930s and is geared to the middle school history-social science instructional program. It also showcases Armenian American and Iranian American literature. The second module, designated for government coursework in high schools, deals with post-1965 immigration of Middle Easterners to America and post-9/11 discrimination experienced by Arab Americans. It includes a related lesson featuring poetry that personalizes the issues at hand. The third module, Voices from the Heartland: Young Yemeni Americans Speak, is targeted at the high school English-Language Arts curriculum. It includes a published resource guide titled From the Queen of Sheba to the Republic of Yemen.
This resource is a collection of various lesson plans that can each be found individually elsewhere on Al-Masdar. >
