This is an outline or syllabus for a five to ten week unit on Arabic Literature translated into English. This poetry, short story and novel unit was developed after a 4-week seminar at the University of Pennsylvania and a 2-week institute for teachers at Dal al-Islam. This is a curriculum guide that does not explain how to teach anything, nor does it include the actual texts themselves. I did, however, sort through numerous books and put the poems, short stories and novels in a logical scope and sequence. This is an amazing selection of authors and texts! This is probably the only Arabic Literature unit you'll come across, so get one now!
