Qatar Foundation International (QFI) has joined hands with Northwestern’s Middle East and North African Studies Program to expand the Chicago Arabic Teachers’ Council, with the aim of supporting Arabic teachers in the Midwest.
The Chicago Arabic Teachers’ Council is organized to serve the needs of K-16 Arabic language teachers and administrators throughout Chicago, including public, private and religious school teachers.
Since 2012, QFI has supported the councils in major US metropolitan areas of Washington DC, Michigan, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
The councils aim to strengthen local Arabic programs by providing a forum for Arabic teachers to network, collaborate and share innovative approaches to teaching, as well as providing outreach and support to educators and their communities, said a statement from QFI.
