Tuesday reading: From required book: How Does it Feel to be a Problem by Moustafa Bayoumi; “Omar”  pg 187-217

Thursday reading: From required book: How Does it Feel to be a Problem by Moustafa Bayoumi; “Rasha” pg 13-44 *and* “Yasmin” pg 81-114

Reading Response:

OMAR
Why are Omar’s Palestinian roots so important to him?
How is his Al-Jazeera internship viewed by him versus by by others?

RASHA
How do Rasha’s culture and experiences influence how she values freedom?
What does her story tell you about the experiences that many Arab-Americans had after 9/11?
AND
YASMIN
Why are Yasmin’s campaigns for E-Board so important to her?
How would you describe Yasmin’s family culture and school culture? How does she resolve these?

AND
Compare the two stories that you read (Omar and Rasha/Yasmin). What cultural elements are shared? What are some of the differences? What do these similarities and differences mean for Arab-American youth culture as a whole?
