Reflections on Teaching about the Muslim Reality


  • Aneesah Nadir Arizona State University-West


The author reflects upon her own experiences having taught a social work elective course about the traditions and experiences of Muslims living in the United States over several years. She also shares the narratives of three of her students as they convey ways the elective course transformed their thinking about one minority religious group and has convinced them of the value of leaming about cultural, religious, and spiritual diversity as they pursue their own practice.
