Teaching about religious extremism can be challenging, but not teaching about it may sow seeds of intolerance. This toolkit for "Extreme Prejudice" is an activity that teaches students about religious diversity and that extremists—in any religion—represent a small minority of people.

Introduction

There are two big ideas for students to take away from this activity. First, extremists represent a small minority of people within any given religion. Second, extremism is not unique to any one belief system. 

Essential Questions

  1. What is religious extremism?
  2. What does religious extremism look like across diverse belief systems?
