ING Deputy Director Ishaq Pathan and Content Manager Ameena Jandali will present this cultural diversity seminar during Cleveland Elementary School’s equity training. They will begin with a conversation about common stereotypes relating to Muslims and their faith followed by a conversation on Islamophobia and its roots, an overview of Muslim traditions and practices, as well as pertinent contemporary issues, and their implications for Muslim students including religious-based bullying. The seminar will also cover federal laws and education codes pertaining to teaching about religion and address the topic of religious practice in the public school system. It will conclude with tips for interacting with Muslim students in a post 9/11 environment while ensuring an inclusive and safe learning environment for all students in which they can fulfill their potential and perform their best. Teachers and administrators will have the opportunity to share their experiences teaching in today’s diverse classrooms.
