Title : Islam project, The

Description :
'The Islam Project' is an initiative which seeks to counter the current climate of fear and misunderstanding surrounding the Islamic faith by providing information which represents a spectrum of perspectives. This website gives an overview of the project, and numerous teaching resources like video clips, essays, lesson plans, gateways to online resources on Islam and the Quran, maps, and a booklet titled 'A Teacher's Guide to Religion in the Public Schools'. The project was funded by the Carnegie Corporation, the James Irvine Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, and the Hasan Family Foundation. Although primarily targeted at high school students and teachers, this resource would be useful for undergraduates who are studying Islam for the first time.
