K-12 Teacher Training: Muslim American History Modules for the Social Studies Curriculum

29 Sep 2021


Speaker: Yasmine Flodin-Ali
Muslims have been present in the United States since before the country’s founding. In this webinar for educators, Yasmine Flodin-Ali will present on three complete lesson plan modules for high school social studies teachers on Muslim American history. The units focus on enslaved Muslims in the United States, early immigration from South Asia and the Middle East, and the Iranian Revolution. Relevant to high school curricula, these units provide accessible resources for diversifying the curriculum and teaching important moments in the history of Muslims in America. This webinar will provide context for each unit and share activities and ideas for teaching each of these topics. Common themes among all three units include identity, belonging, and unique cultural contributions.
