EqualiTeach resource: Faith in Us – Educating Young People about Islamophobia

‘Many young Muslim people say abuse is so commonplace it is normalised, but teachers feel ill-equipped to tackle issues of Islamophobia in the classroom.’

This is according to the May 2018 report (pdf) from EqualiTeach, who have created a resource for primary and secondary school teachers to educate students about Islamophobia. 

The ‘Faith in Us’ resource includes:

  • Background information on the reality and impact of Islamophobia on both young people and wider society
  • Information on recurrent myths, stereotypes and misunderstandings; such as terrorism and women’s rights
  • Guidance on how to recognise and respond effectively to Islamophobic incidents
  • Lesson plans on Islamophobia

It aims to share good practice approaches and activities for educating about Islamophobia and support schools in their duty to engage with this issue.
