Created for social justice classrooms, this lesson plan aims to explore various issues relating to oppression and promote critical thinking. As this lesson plan is specifically responding to anti-Muslim bus ads, this lesson plan focuses on deconstructing stereotypes about Arabs/Muslims/Sikhs and addressing Islamophobia. This lesson plan includes topics such as: difference between Arab/Muslim/ Sikhs, what is the Arab world, origins of Islam and Sikhism, deconstructing stereotypes about Muslims and other minority groups, and Islamophobia. The lesson plan includes specific activities and worksheets pertaining to each topic. Resources and background readings are also provided.


The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
