​Muslim students throughout the United States have been forced to deal with the effects of hateful anti-Islamic rhetoric that has been increasing among politicians and the media. Young people are particularly alienated and marginalized in the face of bullying, hate speech and narrow-minded peers, which result in negative socio-psychological behaviors. As teachers, it is important to combat discriminatory ideologies in the classroom and to provide all children with a rich learning experience in a secure and safe environment. This lesson is designed to provide your students with an understanding about Muslims in the United States.
