A FUN, ENGAGING, PREP-FREE 90 minute lesson plan that teaches the basics of Islam in a secondary social studies setting.
Included: Lesson directions, 14 slide PowerPoint, student fill-in-the-blank notes, Preconceptions of Islam Activity, 10 minute MP4 clip of a What Would You Do? episode (ABC), as well as ancillary links to YouTube videos that compliment the lesson.
The PPT details facts/stats about Islam, life and times of Muhammad, major aspects of Islam (including 5 pillars), and contrasts radical Islam. The preconceptions activity is designed for students to reflect and discuss common stereotypes about Muslims. For a group activity spin on the lesson, see my directions after purchase.
