Jusuur 1 Arabic Alphabet Workbook

Designed to be used simultaneously with Jusuur 1: Beginning Communicative Arabic, the Jusuur 1 Alphabet Workbook teaches students the letters, short vowels, and diacritics found in Arabic. As students learn new letters in the Alphabet Workbook, they strengthen their literacy skills through the reading and writing exercises in Jusuur 1.

A distinguishing feature of the Jusuur 1 Alphabet Workbook is that it introduces letters approximately in the order of letter frequency rather than in the traditional alphabetical order. This method, tested extensively in the classroom, enables students to begin to read and write meaningful phrases they are learning in Jusuur 1: Beginning Communicative Arabic as early as possible. Each letter section includes an introduction to the letter and its shapes and sound; space for writing practice; and activities to practice reading and dictation.

Features of the Alphabet Workbook include:
-Authentic examples of language drawn from poetry, billboards, signs, and other sources to help students learn to identify letters
-Samples of real Arabic handwriting, and guidance on recognizing and writing letters that look different when printed versus handwritten

Resources available on JusuurTextbook.com:
-Audio files for dictation and listening exercises
-Extensive instructor's resources, including pedagogical notes, answers to activities, and recommendations for lesson and unit planning

By the end of the Jusuur 1 Alphabet Workbook, students will have learned all of the letters and sounds of the Arabic alphabet. Used in conjunction with Jusuur 1: Beginning Communicative Arabic, this workbook will give students a firm foundation in Arabic literacy to continue their studies.
