This lesson plan centers around the video Shatir Shatir by Nancy Ajram. There are translation of the phrases in the song, which asks, “What do you call the one who listens to his parents?” and other similar questions, revealing the traits which could earn an Arab child the title of “Shatir” (smart). It includes things like “never tells a lie” and “eats without getting his clothes dirty.” These are great insights into values that Arabs hold dear, and behavioral expectations for children. Nancy Ajram is a popular Lebanese singer whose music is enjoyed across the Middle East and North Africa, as well as in the United States.
