Subject Highlights


Chapter one delves into the perplexing nature of the two conundrums of Arabic instruction. The underachievement of Arabic instruction is clearly not premeditated, and at least on the Jewish side flies in the face of an abundance of resources and a concerted effort to inculcate Arabic proficiency in students. The chapter then traces the evolution of the research project that culminated in this book. The research straddles the divide between observant participation and participant observation, and entails elements of observational, participatory and textual analysis.
