ING Presentations Teach About Religion While Countering Misconceptions
With ongoing conflict involving Muslims overseas and rising Islamophobia at home, it is important to provide a balanced perspective when teaching about Muslims and their faith. Studies have shown that face-to-face interaction is the most powerful tool in challenging stereotypes. For the past 20 years, ING has been doing just that through its classroom presentations and panels. For the impact of ING’s work see its newly released Impact Report.
As the new school year begins, ING is pleased to offer a variety of presentations free of charge for middle, high school and college instructors. To learn more about ING’s presentations about Muslims and their faith or to request a presentation, visit ING’s website, call the ING office at (408) 296-7312 or write to Henry@ing.org.
Additionally, ING provides interfaith panels for the five major world faiths on a variety of contemporary topics. To learn more or to schedule a panel, visit ING’s website.
ING also offers an online curriculum to educators free of charge. All ING curricula include a digital presentation and accompanying text, discussion questions and activities, and a variety of films and films clips with discussion questions. To view a synopsis of or request ING’s online curriculum visit ING’s website.
Wishing you a successful and fun-filled school year!
