Workshop Number: CC-S-209
Location: Grossmont College - TBA
A workshop designed to give teachers ideas and resources to help students get beyond the distortions about Moslems and Islam in media and standard textbooks to explore alternative perspectives. The workshop covers problems with labels and maps used to teach about the elastic region most often called the Middle East and will challenge common misperceptions. Historical issues and cultural interactions will be covered, highlighting the interactions in which Muslims were engaged from the seventh to the nineteenth century and beyond in trade, technology, material culture and the arts. Participants will be given a wide range of recently created resources that will stimulate discussion and support critical understanding among their students. Lunch will be provided for the daylong workshop.
