Product Description
This interactive activity asks students to challenge common assumptions on Islam. Students will be assigned to a group of 4-5 students. Each group will be given two signs: one that says “myth” and one that says “fact.” The included student handout lists several statements that are common assumptions about Islam. The teacher will present the included google presentation one slide at a time. After students have about one minute to discuss their opinions and evidence found on why they believe each statement is a myth or fact, a group member will hold up the sign that best reflects their team’s opinion. The teacher will call on several students to share their evidence. Then, the teacher will share facts to debunk some of the myths associated with Islam. The activity can take one class period or can be extended to several days. Teachers can have students debunk the myths through researching each statement further on their own as well. With this extension, students would be meeting some of the Common Core standards associated with providing evidence to support or disprove an idea. ©mwostratzky2016
