    Developing Cultural Fluency

    Arab and Jewish Students Engaging in One Another's Company

    Jocelyn Anne Glazier
    In this article, Jocelyn Glazier introduces readers to the Arab and Jewish students and teachers of Gal Bilingual/Bicultural School in Israel. Glazier challenges traditional intergroup contact theories and the objectives of peace education centered on prejudice reduction, arguing that education should promote cultural fluency, which can be achieved by creating an environment that requires students to engage in one another's company. Glazier explicates the idea of "company" through a yearlong ethnographic study at the Gal School and details an educational model that fosters cross-cultural awareness in first graders.
