Abstract: Publisher's description: This resource contains a teachers guide covering sensitivity issues pertaining to the needs of Muslim students in the public schools, especially in regards to the two major Muslim holidays. Also included are background readings, short stories, discussion questions and suggested activities for students. Students learn why Ramadan and the Hajj are important to Muslims, and how they celebrate the associated holidays: Eid al-Fitr, the festival of breaking the fast, and EID al-Adha, the festival of sacrifice. Students also learn about the importance of Friday as a day congregational worship and community interaction, and about other important dates in the Islamic calendar.
