Keystone Area Education Agency (AEA), Dubuque in partnership with the Abdelkader Education Project, based in Elkader Iowa, invites educators (grades 7 through college) to explore local and global perspectives on Muslims and Islam today. Our two-day training provides a safe place to ask hard questions and find useful resources to answer them while integrating primary and secondary resources into usable curricula.
Tamar Miller, Center for Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, joins AEA social studies consultant Pat Lehmann and Iowa teachers, Marcia Powell and Karla Duff, in what promises to be a fun and enlightening educator training. Participation of Imam Hassan Selim, Islamic Center of Cedar Rapids and Dema Kazkaz, President of Islamic Center, Waterloo, are confirmed.
For complete agenda, please contact Tamar Miller.
