For Teachers

Resources are grouped based on grade level, type and topic. You can search for articles using keywords of interest. These resources can be used as supplemental materials for individual classes or for integration within existing curriculum and in fulfillment of academic standards. There are also teachers’ guides to provide tips on classroom strategies for inclusion in challenging times, including constitutional guidelines for teaching about religion in the classroom.

Often, when students are assigned homework or projects, finding trusted resources can be a challenging task, especially when they are related to Muslims or Islam. These resources with the advanced search feature will address this challenge, and they include many options for a variety of topics and grade levels.

Discussion Questions

We have created a set of discussion questions for news media articles, videos, films, etc. that are not part of a lesson plan or curriculum. Lesson plans and curricula already contain such questions.
