IQRA’ International Educational Foundation was pleased to be invited by Sr. Akhtar Khan, Principal of Al-Huda Weekend School in Schaumburg, IL, to conduct a summer educational training session for the school’s dedicated teachers.
On Sunday, June 12, teachers from grades pre-k – middle school gathered to absorb the knowledge and experience of Dr. Tasneema Ghazi – a ph.D in reading and curriculum, long time educator, and executive director of at IQRA’ International Educational Foundation. Sr Samana Khan, who is an experienced teacher and Program Coordinator for IQRA’ International Educational Foundation also assisted Dr. Tasneema. The educator’s session was broken into two parts. The first part pertained to the following agenda:
Setting Your Teaching Goals
Planning Your Curriculum
Tools Needed to Teach
Part two of the session was setup in workshop format in which teachers were split into groups based on the grade level they teach. Teachers were then guided through the basics of understanding curriculum scope and sequence in order to help them plan for the upcoming school year. In addition, teachers were assisted in developing professional lesson plans and incorporating teaching methods and best practices.
We would like to thank Al-Huda Weekend School for honoring Dr. Tasneema Ghazi with an award for her limitless dedication in working to aid and improve the education systems of Islamic communities. IQRA’ would also like to acknowledge Principal Akhtar’s amazing drive and relentless efforts to continually advance the school’s program of education.
IQRA’ applauds Principal Akhtar and her team for diligently working to develop a “new type of Sunday school” to appeal to today’s students. We believe the school’s willingness to reach out to experts in the field is a vital step toward equipping its teachers with the tools needed to provide a successful education for its students.
