Emiratis Striving for Excellence

For a Grade 12 English assignment, students were asked to interview an Emirati woman (or man) about the role she plays in her industry. Part of the project was to address the issue of access for women in the specified field.
Students were required to research the industry beforehand in order to ask questions which would elicit detailed responses. The results are insightful interviews about geologists, doctors, dieticians, and business owners all from the United Arab Emirates that we hope will inspire you and your children to achieve success.

Learning Objectives:

Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the strengths and limitations of each source in terms of the task, purpose, and audience; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and overreliance on any one source and following a standard format for citation.
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Present information, findings, and supporting evidence, conveying a clear and distinct perspective, such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning, alternative or opposing perspectives are addressed, and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and a range of formal and informal tasks.
Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.
