Lesson Plans

Last year, the Global Islam and the Arts Teacher Fellows Program offered an intensive professional development opportunity featuring a year-long exploration of Muslim cultures through music, dance, and dramatic performances during the 2016-17 Carolina Performing Arts season. This project deepened teachers' understanding of global Islam through a cultural arts perspective. Teachers who participated in the program developed detailed, creative lessons for teaching about global Islam. View the lesson plans here.
