Teaching Islam

Edited by Brannon M. Wheeler

Part of the American Academy of Religion's Teaching Religious Studies series, Teaching Islam brings together leading Islamic Studies scholars to offer perspectives on how to teach Islam in an undergraduate setting. The contributors have a wealth of experience in diverse classroom settings, from survey courses at large public universities to small classes at private colleges. The twelve chapters linked below provide guidance for educators teaching topics such as Islamic law, the Qurʾan, Sufism, women in Islam, Islam in America, and the use of new information technologies in the classroom.

With extensive links to supporting survey articles, biographies, maps, and primary source documents available on Oxford Islamic Studies Online, these chapters not only instruct educators on how to teach certain topics, they also supply supplementary materials to support the suggested lesson plans.
