New book release – Learning and Teaching about Islam June 29, 2012

Posted by Jonathan Barnes, editor in New releases.

We are pleased to announce a new publication from John Catt – Learning and Teaching about Islam: Essays in Understanding.

The book, edited by Caroline Ellwood, brings together essays from experienced educators and academics in its aim to promote greater understanding in our schools.

It will help teachers appreciate the history of Islam and its immense importance in the modern world and will also help them appreciate the dangers of seeing the developments in Islamic countries unfold through the prism of Western ideologies.
