Schools

Overview

ING provides valuable educational resources for teachers, administrators and staff, including interactive presentations for middle and high school students that are aligned with the California State Board of Education History-Social Science content standards and are intended to supplement your curriculum. ING teaches about world religions, including Islam, in the context of religious pluralism and in accordance with the First Amendment Center guidelines.

Schedule a Presentation About American Muslims

In light of ongoing global conflicts and the threat of terrorism that have both served to increase stereotypes and misperceptions about Muslims, it is important for students to meet American Muslims face to face to counter stereotyping and bias. ING offers presentations for middle and high school students to supplement the study of Islamic civilization and Muslim culture in the context of social studies and history. There is no charge for these presentations.

Schedule an Interfaith Panel

ING provides interfaith panels with representatives from the five major world religions for high school classrooms where world history, comparative religions, and culture and/or diversity are part of the curriculum. Teachers can choose a panel with up to five interfaith speakers who first provide an introduction to each of their religions before addressing a topic of your choice; the Muslim and Jewish panel provides an overview of these two religions before discussing common practices and challenges as minorities in America. There is no charge for these panels.
