Arab Gateways

Arab GatewaysArab Gateways: A resource for Australian students and teachers explores some of the history, geography, economics and culture of the Arab region. It promotes understanding of the cultures, values, beliefs and diversity of peoples of the Arab region.

About the project

Arab Gateways has been developed by Education Services Australia with a grant from the Council for Australian-Arab Relations (CAAR), which is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The resource aims to enable teachers to promote between the peoples of Australia and the Arab world mutual interests and a greater understanding and acceptance of each other's cultures, values, beliefs and diversity.

The Arab Gateways website provides an online version of the printed resource book with accompanying DVD ROM sent to all secondary schools in Australia.

A teacher professional learning program to support the use of the resource was delivered by the Australian Federation of Societies for Studies of Society and Environment (AFSSSE) during the second half of 2011 and early 2012.
