“The final step of the Integrating Islam: 5 Steps to Effective Curriculum Integration series. The series finale is titled  ‘Philosophical Underpinning of the Curriculum‘.

In the context of colonial schools and post-colonization, Step 5 takes us back to the foundation of curriculum and its current underlying philosophy. Based on Dr.Freda Shamma’s paper “The Curriculum Challenge for Islamic Schools in America“, Dr. Nadeem identifies 7 questions we need to think about when designing and teaching our school curricula.”

Here are Steps 1 through 4 of Integrating Islam into your Muslim school curriculum:

Step 1: Learning Outcomes

Step 2: Instructional Methods

Step 3: Curriculum Content and Resources

Step 4: Assessment
