Countering Anti-Muslim Racism in Classrooms and Schools is a 6-12th grade curriculum aligned to Common Core.

Since the 1960s, the United States has witnessed a steady rise in violent incidents and policies that intimidate, harm, and exclude Muslim communities. As critical educators, we have a responsibility to actively confront and dismantle Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism in our schools and classrooms. We have designed this curriculum to help students better understand anti-Muslim racism, its historical antecedents, and its contemporary implications and consequences for Muslim communities across the United States.
