Professional development on Islamophobia: A multicultural framework for secondary school public school educators

This project focuses on Islamophobia as a problem of society that affects Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Prejudice and discrimination caused an increase of hate crimes and xenophobia against Muslims and people that “look” Muslim. These attitudes had influences on school sites, creating a significant rise in bullying against Muslim students, along with stereotypes from teachers about the Muslim community. This project resulted in the creation of a professional development curriculum that explored how multicultural frameworks, along with culturally relevant and responsive pedagogies, engage with issues surrounding Islamophobia and the teachers’ understanding of Islam. This professional development curriculum offers a comprehensive training for educators on topics including understanding Islamophobia, biases in the classroom, the creation of inclusive environments, and building support for their Muslim students.
