A Land Called Paradise
This lesson uses the vocabulary and concepts commonly applied to the study of the immigrant experience in America. It begins with a look at the religious prejudice faced by other immigrant groups in America (Irish Catholics in the 1850s) as a point of comparison to Muslims. Students then choose a Muslim immigrant group to research, create an imaginary immigrant, and as that immigrant introduce themselves in a monologue before the class.
