This conversational focus is around Muslim American student experiences in public schools and the unique ways they go through the k-12 public school system. The main idea is that while Muslim students have unique experience, implicit bias and exclusion towards any minority student is common practice. The basis of our presentation is that inclusion, cultural responsiveness, and educated teachers are a vital part of a student's experience in American school systems.
The entire "workshop" is a conversation. The first part of the presentation are a series of true and false statements that participants respond to. The second part of the "workshop" is an opportunity for participants to discuss how Islamophobia has shown up in curriculum and collectively present ways to address and eliminate the Islamophobia.
