Educating American Children About Islam

My son’s sixth grade class recently completed a video project on Islam.  His school, the Town School, has posted streaming videos from the project on their website.  I particularly enjoyed the segment titled Fundamentalism, Jihad, and 9/11

These videos are short– ranging from two to four minutes long– and informative.  Most imporantly, they show that our children are learning basic facts about Islam while dispelling stereotypes about religious fundamentalism.  I applaud this project and hope that many more schools throughout the U.S. are doing things like this.
