Debunking Stereotypes About Muslims and Islam

This lesson from Teaching Tolerance focuses on challenging stereotypes about Muslims and Islam. Such an activity is an important start to any unit on the Middle East, as students may have only been exposed to the stereotypes, and not the diverse reality. Students explore information that debunks certain stereotypes while exploring data pertaining to beliefs and demographics of the Muslim community.
