Racevskis, M. (1999). Cultures in conflict: Driss Chraïbi's La Civilisation, ma mère ! Franco-arab literature in the high school curriculum . In Nerenz, A. (Ed.), Standards for a new century. (pp. 156-166). Lincolnwood, IL: National Textbook Company.

This chapter will interest French teachers, particularly at advanced high school or college levels where students have developed a certain reading ability. The author describes the rationale, organization, and implementation of a unit built on the novel La Civilisation, ma mère ! by Driss Chraïbi. She advocates for teaching this unit, framed through a series of reading selections and skits, in terms of the Standards it addresses, detailing how each particular content standard is addressed. The unit includes assessment and a suggestion for a Moroccan meal, which the author presents as addressing the community standard. She concludes with noting how the unit motivates students of different abilities and interests to apply themselves in their study of language.
