Stop the Violence: A Guide to Cultural Understanding STOP 2nd Quarter Project World History Advanced
Socrates once said… “Ignorance leads to evil.”
Confucius once said… “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
However, since 9/11 one religion has been disrespected by thousands of Americans who are ignorant to a very old and peaceful religion.
People who practice the Islamic faith have been discriminated against because of a few radical extremists who carried out the terrorist attack on that day.
You have recently been hired by the local chapter of the “Center for Islamic Studies” to develop a PowerPoint to teach non-Muslim high school students about this religion.
Before beginning your research and presentation, It is important to realize the mission of the Center for Islamic studies: - To educate non-Muslims about the beliefs, traditions, and history of the Islamic faith. (This may be difficult because of some pre-concieved notions of many Americans since 9/11)
While developing your PowerPoint slideshow it is important to consider the following four points: • The history of Islam • Islamic beliefs • Cultural advances and achievements • The spread of Islam
The Presentation will be given by the center’s spokesperson in a couple of weeks, so the deadline below has to be met. • A-Day Students Monday, 11/4. • B Day Students Tuesday, 11/5.
Some other reminders: • You will only turn in your storyboard AND a print out of your PowerPoint presentation. • You will complete this activity on your own. • A scoring guide for this 500 point project is available on the following green slides.
