Dybola, Ellen; Andino, Ann; Arnold, Harriet; Asvos, Maria; Robles, Ivette
This booklet consists of four lesson plans to be used with students in preschool through grade 9. The first lesson, for preschool children with special needs, is titled "Introduction to Islamic Customs and Practices." It introduces new vocabulary and concepts while focusing on Islamic customs and practices. The second lesson, "Islam Lesson Plan" (focused on language arts), is for third grade students. It is designed for a group of students receiving tutorial help for a 45-minute reading period and entails work in cooperative groups. The third lesson is titled "Using the Novel Shabanu, Daughter of the Wind as a Window into Islamic Religion and Culture in Pakistan" and is for grades 6-8. It suggests using the juvenile fiction book, "Shabanu, Daughter of the Wind," both for its literary merits and as a window into religious beliefs. The fourth lesson, "Islam (Social Studies)," is intended for grades 6-9 and introduces students to the fundamental beliefs, rituals, and ceremonies in Islam. Each of the four lesson plans contains an introduction, goals and objectives, resources required, step-by-step suggestions for each day's activities, and references. (BT)
