Authored by Belal Joundeya, Fly with Arabic: Unit Six (My Daily Routine) ...

Authored by Belal Joundeya, Fly with Arabic: Unit Six (My Daily Routine) features a variety of language-learning lessons tied together by fun themes related to everyday life, daily schedules, and interpersonal interactions. The unit focuses on the acquisition of listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills, as well as knowledge of Arabic cultures and history.

Unit six is the sixth chapter in the "Fly with Arabic" series, which is comprised of a total of eight units, each containing several lessons, including fill-in-the-blank exercises, open-ended writing practice, and word-matching games, that seek to reinforce specific learning outcomes, such as oral and written production, writing, and reading. Additionally, brief cultural drills are included in each unit, and are designed to add a cultural dimension to each unit's language activities. All units also contain self- assessment checklists to help monitor and measure the learner's progress during the unit.

In summary, through using a number of drills to produce vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing, and speaking skills, including pictures, word-matching games, open-ended writing practice, and fill-in-the-blank exercises, the "Fly with Arabic" series seeks to connect all phases of Arabic-learning into one comprehensive package.

" This course explores the foundations of policy making in developing countries. The goal is to spell out various policy options and to quantify the trade-offs between them. We will study the different facets of human development: education, health, gender, the family, land relations, risk, informal and formal norms and institutions. This is an empirical class. For each topic, we will study several concrete examples chosen from around the world. While studying each of these topics, we will ask: What determines the decisions of poor households in developing countries? What constraints are they subject to? Is there a scope for policy (by government, international organizations, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs))? What policies have been tried out? Have they been successful?"

Kimberly Lawrence understands how self-identity and family-identity are key elements of early childhood development. This self and group identity lays the foundation for young children to learn about citizenship and what it means to be part of a community. ŇStar Student of the WeekÓ is an activity that helps students learn about themselves and each other. The class interviews the star student asking questions of their choice. These interview questions are later turned into an article about the star student to integrate reading and writing skills.To begin learning about family identity, families are invited to class and have reading time together to start the day. The familyŐs presence at school helps students understand how their parents are also part of the school community and kicks off the essential question of Ňwhat do we know about familiesÓ.
