Building Background: Who are the Bedouins?

Warm Up  Next week we will read the short story "Nadia the Willful," which features a group of people known as the Bedouins.  Read some background information about these people here and here.  Be prepared to discuss and share what you learn.   

Video: Life as a Bedouin  Watch an excerpt of the video Latcho Drom below and learn more about what life as part of a Bedouin tribe is like.  Share what you've learned and the observations you've made about the Bedouin from the text above and the video below here.
