In an age when the war on terrorism dominates the headlines, it's especially important that we understand what Islam really stands for to most Muslims. This Powerpoint starts with a look at the physical environment of Arabia and then covers the life of Mohammed. Out of repsect to Muslims, the pictures in this lesson are from traditional Muslim artists and do not show the prophet's face.
The last part of the lesson explains the Five Pillars of Islam in order to give students a good basic understanding of this religion.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
