Muslim American History and Life

A three-week seminar for 16 school teachers on Muslim American history and contemporary life.

The purpose of this three-week seminar for K-12 educators, a version of which was successfully offered in 2015 and 2017 and will be offered again in 2018, is to strengthen teaching about Muslim American history and contemporary life. Focusing on primary sources and supplemented by visits to two mosques in the greater Indianapolis area, the seminar will prepare sixteen participants to teach about a key question of our historical moment: what does it mean to be both Muslim and American? This seminar will emphasize the richness and diversity of Muslim American voices, offering balanced, complex, and informed answers to this question. In addition, participants will research areas of special relevance to their classes and prepare presentations on how to incorporate the seminar’s themes into their teaching. As a result, teachers will return home ready to inspire their students to greater intellectual understanding of America, including its history and its contemporary life.
