Quote of the Month:
In Islam, the realm of spirituality is located within the human experience of transcendence. It does not matter whether one is anchored in an organized religious tradition or not. The experience of transcendence is positioned in the depth of the human heart, which needs to be explored by each individual through the natural endowment with which all humans have been created. This endowment – the innate capacity (fitrah) to incline toward transcendence – is the source of that human spiritual and moral awareness (taqwa) that is created the moment they are fashioned as humans (Quran 97:7-10).
Ifta’ and Fatwa in the Muslim World and the West, Zulfiqar Ali Shah (ed.), “Islam, Healthcare, and Spirituality,”Abdulaziz Sachedina, IIIT, p. 175

Fifteen teachers participated in the second Teacher Training Enrichment Program (TTEP) as part of a three stage model that started in the Winter and will end in June 2019. The workshop opened with a public presentation by Dr. Timothy Curby, an Associate Professor and director of the developmental psychology program at George Mason University. The title of his presentation was ” Emotions in the Classroom: How do Teachers Help Preschoolers Become Emotionally Competent?” The talk was attended by 25 teachers and educators from Islamic schools in the area and focused on Dr. Curby's research on emotional competencies.
The rest of the workshop was spent on in depth engagement in lessons and activities to instill social and emotional competencies using learner centered pedagogy. Teachers experienced activities to distinguish between social and emotional skills and competencies, to encourage problem solving skills, and designed their own lessons to activate social and emotional pedagogy in their Islamic studies and other content areas in kindergarten through 12th grade.
