Abstract/Notes: This author describes how her elementary students first became interested in studying ancient Egypt. Her students' interest in the ancient Egyptian studies began when a student checked out a library book on Egyptology that contained colorful images and was soon swarmed by interested classmates. Many of her students began practicing writing hieroglyphics while others became fascinated by Egyptian pyramids, jewelry, and artwork. She was amazed at the sustained interest in Egypt over the year and thought it would be beneficial to introduce Egyptian mythology in addition to other cultural factors (such as jobs, dependency on the Nile, animals, food, and clothing) to the students. In addition, she developed "Journey to Egypt," a board game meant to provide opportunities for students to use acquired knowledge, to develop and/or master vocabulary (cultural terms such as "ankh," "scarab", "pharaoh," "pyramid," "vizier," "plague," etc.), to explore another time period, and to identify elements of ancient Egypt (religion and mythology, artistic trends and achievements, and systems of reading and writing). Instructions on how to play Journey to Egypt are also presented.

Abstract/Notes: Spiritual development plays a vital role in young people’s psychological health and wellness, and spiritual awareness is beneficial in developing morals and coping strategies when dealing with real-life situations (Lee et al., 2020). A lack of scholarly literature addressing the spiritual growth of Egyptian youth involved in evangelical camps and now living for Christ in a predominately Muslim society prompted this study. This qualitative narrative study was based on the theoretical framework of social constructivism pioneered by Vygotsky. The research participants were four Egyptian youth who had attended a Christian camp, made the life-changing decision to follow Christ, and were involved in a discipleship and mentorship program after camp. All interviews were conducted in English and Arabic using Zoom video conferencing and were recorded and transcribed using the Otter.ai transcription application in English. The four Egyptian youth shared detailed information about their lived experiences during and after camp to provide stories about the spiritual discipleship program with mentors after camp. Data was collected, verified for accuracy by the participants, then coded and analyzed to reveal four emergent themes. The themes were, Egyptian life, the participants’ spiritual experience at camp, discipleship with mentors after camp, and recommendations for future camps. Findings from this study suggested spiritual discipleship and mentorship played a significant part in the participants’ spiritual growth after camp.

Abstract/Notes: Inclusive education means that exceptional children (EC) can fully participate in the learning process alongside their typically developing peers, supported by reasonable accommodations and teaching strategies that are tailored to meet their individual needs. The main goal of inclusion policies for EC is to provide high-quality education for all without discrimination and to ensure the implementation of equal opportunity principles. The primary purpose of this study is to explore the reality of inclusive education systems in Egypt and the United States (US) and to develop a better understanding of similarities and differences and thus identify the lessons learned. The study applied a comparative analysis method. Research findings revealed that the progress towards inclusion practices in Egyptian inclusive public schools is minimal and hindered by many challenges. Among them are lacking financial resources and a shortage of qualified teachers trained to differentiate curricula for EC. Based on the research findings, the study concludes with recommendations to improve the Egyptian inclusive education for EC.
