There are a wide range of interactions between 'science' and 'the public'. Examples range from visiting a museum, or indulging in a science-related hobby, to reading a newspaper article about a breakthrough in the techniques of therapeutic cloning. Many of these interactions could be said to be 'passive'. This unit explores the practicalities of the public becoming more 'active' in the direction of science practice by 'two-way' interactions, with dialogue taking place between science and some part of 'the public',
This webpage displays a common conversation between three friends. The structure and topics of the conversation are purposefully general so as to be helpful to students' ability to create and sustain conversations of their own. The conversation includes Arabic text, transliteration, and translation.
Salam Dear Visitor,
This is the first edition of the “Arabic Language Through Dialogue” 1, 2 and 3 series in addition to the Iraqi Dialect through Dialogue book. The series attempts to make learning of the Arabic language more accessible and enjoyable to non-native speakers of Arabic using dialogues and communicative exercises that relate to the dialogue in each lesson. The series was made possible by partial funding and complete encouragement from the Language Acquisition Resource Center (LARC) under the directorship of Dr. Mary Ann Lyman-Hager and hosted at the San Diego State University. Dr. Ghada Osman, the director of the Center of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the San Diego State University, offered us invaluable advice and encouragement. In these books you will see the following:
1.High frequency dialect (A’miyyah) utterances are incorporated in each dialogue to give the learner a flavor of a’miyyah across the Arab world.
2.Arabic music and songs are used to teach the various dialects of the Arab world and to infuse the books with Arab culture.
3.The dialogues deal with everyday life issues from ordering food to renting a house to buying a car to talking about School and politics and social issues. All of this is done in a very easy MSA language that approximates the spoken language of educated Arabs.
4.Idiomatic expressions are incorporated in the dialogues.
5.Famous Arabic proverbs are part of every lesson in Book 3 and they come from a different región in the Arab world. We did not want to focus on one dialect as we wanted to expose learners to the 4 major Arabic dialects through songs, idiomatic expressions and high frequency words and then leave it up to the learner to decide which one he/she is most interested in. Once they decide which dialect they want to pursue, they can then plan their summer or semester abroad based on that knowledge.
6.Many games and fun activities are incorporated in each lesson.
7.Grammar is an important piece of these books but it is not the centerpiece. Learners will be exposed to all the grammatical notions and concepts needed to build their linguistic knowledge but the our focus remains on the USING the language rather than knowing ABOUT the language.
8.All the dialogues are available here on this page to listen to.
9.Tahiyyati and I hope that you enjoy learning Arabic using this series

I have slightly changed from my preliminary lesson idea and changed it to focus on communication and conflict resolution. This lesson is on understanding the issue of conflict and conflict resolution through dialouge. I designed the lesson keeping Aisha in mind. She reported having conflict with their community regarding girls education due to lack of communication with the community members. I have added my lesson plan here, would appreciate feedback for the material. Thank you!
The 11th grade learning experience consists of 7 mostly month-long units aligned to the Common Core State Standards, with available course material for teachers and students easily accessible online. Over the course of the year there is a steady progression in text complexity levels, sophistication of writing tasks, speaking and listening activities, and increased opportunities for independent and collaborative work. Rubrics and student models accompany many writing assignments.Throughout the 11th grade year, in addition to the Common Read texts that the whole class reads together, students each select an Independent Reading book and engage with peers in group Book Talks. Students move from learning the class rituals and routines and genre features of argument writing in Unit 11.1 to learning about narrative and informational genres in Unit 11.2: The American Short Story. Teacher resources provide additional materials to support each unit.
In this unit, students will explore great works of American literature and consider how writers reflect the time period in which they write. They will write two literary analysis papers and also work in groups to research and develop anthologies of excellent American stories.
Students read and analyze stories from several 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century American authors. After researching a time period, they select stories from that period to create an anthology. The readings enhance their understanding of the short story, increase their exposure to well-known American authors, and allow them to examine the influence of social, cultural, and political context.
Students examine elements of short stories and have an opportunity for close reading of several American short stories. During these close readings, they examine the ways that short story writers attempt to explore the greater truths of the American experience through their literature.
These questions are a guide to stimulate thinking, discussion, and writing on the themes and ideas in the unit. For complete and thoughtful answers and for meaningful discussions, students must use evidence based on careful reading of the texts.
If you were to write a short story about this decade, what issues might you focus on?
What defines a short story? Just length?

This webpage lists intermediate-level conversational phrases and terms. The terms are listed in Arabic, transliteration, and English translation. The more difficult terms are presented with brief commentary to supply context. The listed terms and phrases include words conducive to beginning and sustaining fairly complex and wide-ranging conversations.
Lesson eleven features a nine line dialogue that takes place in a coffee shop. Students are able to read the lines in Arabic and utilize the voiceover feature that plays the lines of dialogue in Arabic. The dialogue caters to students interested in learning how to carry themselves in a general social setting. The two subsections include a word list that defines many of the words used in the dialogue, while the brief grammar section lists, in transliterated Arabic, the Arabic pronouns most often used in general conversation.
Lesson fifteen features a dialogue revolving around Egypt's two main religious traditions: Islam and Christianity. The seven line dialogue indirectly exposes students to particular cultural elements of the Arabic-speaking world, e.g. religious traditions, while continuing to encourage students to follow the dialogue in both Arabic writing and speaking. The "word list" subsection defines many of the words and phrases used in the dialogue.
Lesson seventeen continues the conversational focus of the lessons. This lesson consists of a seven line dialogue that allows students to follow by both reading and listening. indirectly, the lesson exposes students to important grammar rules in the formation of complete sentences. A word list is included in which most of the words and phrases used in the lesson are defined in English.
Lesson twelve contains a short dialogue between a group of friends about movies. Students can follow along by reading the Arabic text and/or listening to the Arabic dialogue. The dialogue uses a variety of verbs, adjectives, nominal and verbal sentences, so students will have opportunities to see how proper sentences can be constructed to facilitate general, casual conversations.
In this seminar, you’ll learn about dialogue, including how writers use it to “move” their stories along. As a narrator, you will practice using dialogue, which will help you understand how people involved in conflict interact genuinely. Some lines of dialogue will be longer than others; there’s a reason for that. Some narratives have very little dialogue; there’s a reason for that. Ultimately, you will continue to analyze the perspectives of characters (people) in a narrative setting to better understand the human condition and how their voices contribute to it. This seminar will require innovation on your part, as you will not only learn terminology associated with dialogue, but also put those devices into action as you create your own (mini) narrative with characters who interact.StandardsCC.1.4.9-10.MWrite narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events.CC.1.4.9-10.NEngage and orient the reader by setting out a problem, situation, or observation, establishing one or multiple points of view, and introducing a narrator and/or characters.CC.1.4.9-10.PCreate a smooth progression of experiences or events using a variety of techniques to sequence events so that they build on one another to create a coherent whole; provide a conclusion that follows from and reflects on what is experienced, observed, or resolved over the course of the narrative.

What do educators need to participate in an open and honest conversation about the content of The New Jim Crow? Effective instruction about The New Jim Crow requires advanced preparation for how to talk about race and racism.
While watching a video featuring Wynton Marsalis and his band, students learn about a jazz concept called "Collective Improvisation." They then apply the concept to creating an original dialogue between two characters.
Why is this an important concept?
When students can create original literary texts in which characters use dialogue to express themselves, they demonstrate a deep understanding of character development. In turn, they develop skills in listening and responding in conversations.
