Many religions have things in common. At the same time, each is unique. In the shared category, Islam, like Christianity and Judaism, descends from the first five books of the Bible. That’s why some people refer to members of all three religions as “followers of the Book.” Some people also call the three religions “Abrahamic” because they all descended from Abraham. In the unique category, Jews were the first to believe that there was one God; Muslims believe that Muhammad was God’s messenger and Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the Messiah.
In the same way that religions are both alike and unique, so, too are the members of those religions. In this activity, students learn more about Muslims in the United States and practice graph-reading skills.
Students are introduced to detail drawings and the importance of clearly documenting and communicating their designs. They are introduced to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Y14.5 standard, which controls how engineers communicate and archive design information. They are introduced to standard paper sizes and drawing view conventions, which are major components of the Y14.5 standard.
Students act as Mars exploratory rover engineers. They evaluate rover equipment options and determine what parts fit in a provided NASA budget. With a given parts list, teams use these constraints to design for their rover. The students build and display their edible rover at a concluding design review.
Students act as Mars exploratory rover engineers, designing, building and displaying their edible rovers to a design review. To begin, they evaluate rover equipment and material options to determine which parts might fit in their given NASA budget. With provided parts and material lists, teams analyze their design options and use their findings to design their rovers.

A group of white high school students dresses in banana suits for a basketball game and taunts their majority-black rival with racial slurs.
A Sikh student has his turban pulled off and hair cut by fellow students.
Your school has plans and protocols in place to respond to fires, severe weather, medical emergencies, fights and weapons possession. But what about school incidents like those listed above that involve bigotry and hate? Are plans in place to respond to a bias incident or hate crime? Too often these plans are created in the moment during the actual crisis. Bias incidents are far too complex for on-the-fly planning; an early misstep can heighten tension and damage chances for long-term success.
Tolerance-Why are we as a people so intolerant of others whether from the present, past or future?Students will have the ability to identify injustices that have been committed throughout the world. Whether this is of recent origin in society or it is remnants from World Wars, you will identify the intolerance and educate the reader throughout your Research Paper. Throughout this semester the theme of this class has been intolerance. We have discussed this in our classes, on paper with discussion questions and by watching videos. Now you will have a chance to select your topic and arrive upon a thesis that will engage and answer the questions that you have about the intolerance of the world and its' people.
The purpose of this lesson is to encourage students to examine various aspects of cultural identity. The students will view the film Turbans, which focuses on a Sikh family's immigration to Oregon in the early 1900s.
Students will learn to speak to a group and listen while others speak.
Students will learn about similarities and differences within the classroom and with our families. (Extension will be to make symbolic flag for families which leads into the US Symbols lesson).
Students will learn the meaning of strengths and struggles and begin to understand what their own strengths and struggles are.
Students will learn how they can help others in the class throughout the year, as well as others in their families.
Students will produce a class quilt of pictures of working collaborative to help each other.
