Lesson Plans about Muslims and Islam

ING offers the following curricula free of charge for educators in middle and high schools as well as colleges and universities. Each curriculum includes a digital presentation and lesson plans which feature notes that explain each slide in the presentation, as well as discussion questions, activities, and links to dozens of films and other resources.

These curricula were designed to supplement content standards in social studies and world history and address many of the themes created by the National Council for the Social Studies Curriculum Standards and the National Center for History in the Schools at UCLA. Many of these themes are also addressed in state social studies content standards of leading states like California, Texas, and New York.
