On Friday, October 23, 2009, the Pluralism Project offered two sessions at the “Michigan Educators Teaching Workshop: Boston Mid-Year Conference” organized by the Outreach Center at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. This Workshop brought together educator-leaders from Flint, Michigan and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to consider “approaches to and understandings of communities in Michigan related to the Middle East region and how to integrate teaching about them in curriculum and resources.” Assistant Director Kathryn Lohre taught both sessions, which provided an overview of the Pluralism Project and our resources, and an introduction to our Case Study Initiative. In an interactive session on the case study method, participants engaged in a discussion utilizing our case: “Driven by Faith or Customer Service? Muslim Taxi Drivers at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport.”
