New online curriculum for educators – Emir Abd el-Kader, A Muslim Hero for Our Time
Eulogized simultaneously as the “George Washington of Algeria” and savior of Christians in Syria, his remarkable story makes for a great narrative and teaching moment in history. Look for our new online curriculum series on Muslim heroes. The first release is titled Emir Abd el-Kader: A Muslim Hero for our Time. Based on the life of the 19th century Algerian leader Abd el-Kader, the five lesson plans chronicle his life from Algeria to Syria. The curriculum complements the study of North Africa, Arab, and Muslim history in the context of social sciences content standards. Also suitable for private and weekend schools. Current online curriculum for educators can be found at https://ing.org/7-12
New ING youth program
(for middle and high schoolers)
At our February 8th Annual Dinner, we will launch a new youth program focused on empowering Muslim youth in grades 6th through 12th grades. The goal of the program is to provide them with both the confidence and the knowledge of their faith that will enable them to educate others and prevent and respond constructively to prejudice in their schools and communities. More information can be found at the Annual Dinner page.
