In 2019, the Abdelkader Education Project (AEP), in partnership with the Center for Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations at Merrimack College, invited middle and high school teachers, and college and university faculty to adapt and use AEP’s educational resources in their classrooms.
AEP curricula suits learning objectives in history, social studies, geography, military, religion, biography, or leadership classrooms. Winners implemented 3 lessons about the life story and legacy of Emir Abdelkader, including contemporary connections and offered feedback on the experience.
Since 2009, AEP has held the Abdelkader Global Leadership Prize for high school and college students across the U.S., awarding over 60 student monetary prizes. The 2020 Abdelkader Global Leadership Prize contest for students is open. Learn more here.
