Challenges of Hijab and Social Media in Today’s World
One Time Class
In this one-time class, the students will gain a better perspective on why, as Muslim women, we wear hijab and have a different view on gender interactions both outside and on social media.
What is the Learning Goal?
- Appreciate the nuances for command and prohibitions within Islam.
- Recognize Wisdom in revelation and prophetic practices.
- Be proud of what makes them unique as Muslim adolescents in the West.
- Be equipped with responses – both in action and word – to sensitive and controversial topics.
What are the Assignments?
This course will not focus on homework. Rather, the focus will aim to foster productive discussion within the classroom. Journals will be a part of the weekly classroom process, aiming to engage students in thought-provoking exercises. Most non-journal assignments will be clips students will be asked to view in anticipation of the next class or mini-projects.
