Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Toward a Better Understanding of Arabic Teaching as a Heritage Language: A Case Study of a High School Arabic Language Teacher
by Turkistani, Faridah, Ph.D., George Mason University, 2019, 220; 13864077
Abstract (Summary)

This case study of a teacher of Arabic-speaking heritage language learners (HLL) reported the experiences and pedagogical practices of a teacher to better understand the reasons for her success in preparing young HLL. The teacher’s experiences informed findings regarding ways to improve HL teaching for Arabic-speaking students. This research study addressed a decided gap in the knowledge of effective teaching practices for Arabic as a heritage language (AHL) in high school. Therefore, the present study helps fill this gap by conducting a case study of an AHL teacher in the context of high school teaching.
