Your first blog entry is a personal (subjective) reflection about the course and what you know about the Arab World. Please be as honest and direct as you can. I appreciate and respect every opinion, no matter whether I agree with you or not. Here are some questions, I want you to reflect about:
- Why did you choose to take this class?
- What are your expectations? What do you hope to get out of this class?
- Have you ever been to the Arab World? When? What did you do?
- What were your views about the Arab and Muslim world prior to 9/11?
- Did the events of September 11 change your views about Arabs and Muslims? How and why?
