What are the histories and stories of Muslims in America's Midwest? Muslim Americans have helped to shape the contours of life in the Midwest, serving as restauranteurs, soldiers fighting in the World Wars, workers on the factory floor and in the corporate boardroom, activists in the Civil Rights movement, and researchers bringing innovations to the health-care and technology sectors of the American economy.

Muslims in America's Midwest invites teachers to explore this history and create innovative curricula to take back home. Participants will gain basic knowledge of Islam in its geographical, national, ethnic, and ideological diversity, learn about Muslims of America’s Midwest through fiction and non-fiction texts, and develop curriculum projects promoting a pluralistic approach to religious understanding.
