At this workshop teachers will hear presentations that provide a foundation for teaching about the Islamic world and its diversity to their students. The focus will be on two edges of the Islamic world: Southeast Europe and Southeast Asia. Speakers will provide comparisons between Islamic religion and culture in these two regions and will also discuss how they compare with Middle Eastern Islam. The latter half of the workshop will emphasize pedagogy and teachers will have the opportunity to discuss strategies for incorporating new content and developing new lessons.
