Heckert Center for Children's Reading and Writing
This institute’s mission includes research, education, training, and outreach. Teams of faculty, staff, and students representing numerous existing and successful centers at Miami will tackle problems and research needs they identify and will respond to needs that address questions posed by state government officials and gaming industry leaders.
This Institute invites teachers to explore this history and create innovative curricula to take back home. Participants will gain basic knowledge of Islam in its geographical, national, ethnic, and ideological diversity, learn about Muslims of America’s Midwest through fiction and non-fiction texts, and develop curriculum projects promoting a pluralistic approach to religious understanding.
