Islamic schools are in a unique position to foster positive self-identities for students who value diversity, justice, and meaningful engagement by incorporating anti-racism education within the curriculum.
Building upon the goals of anti-bias education (positive self-identity, appreciation of diversity, awareness of injustice, and empowerment to respond to prejudice/injustice), Islamic schools can create learning communities that authentically reflect Islam’s egalitarian ethos.
This webinar offers new directions in the implementation of anti-bias education in diverse Islamic school communities. It outlines anti-bias learner-centered practices, which include storytelling, dialogue, art-based learning, and project based learning, as well as other tools that educators can use for incorporating anti-bias, multicultural education in their classroom.
