HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
Through the ‘Being a Canadian Muslim Woman in the 21st Century’ project, the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) sought to develop an educational resource kit for teachers and guidance counsellors that would provide accurate, sympathetic, and culturally-appropriate information. To meet this goal, CCMW engaged consultants Dr. Jasmin Zine and Dr. Zabedia Nazim. To gain a comprehensive understanding of the needs of the various stakeholders, the consultants conducted a needs assessment that involved a series of focus group interviews with pre- and in-service teachers and Muslim students from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the London and Waterloo areas.
The educational resource kit was designed based on the findings of the needs assessment report, and reflects the concerns of key stakeholders in the project. Mindful of the transformative aims of the ‘Being a Canadian Muslim Woman in the 21st Century’ project, the consultants guided their design of this kit using analytical and discursive frameworks. These frameworks were based on critical multicultural, anti-racism education and anti-Islamophobia education.
