We’re covering the standards about the Qu’ran and the Sunnah, and in an attempt to stretch out the lesson/give students more access to the material, I painstakingly selected a few four minute clips from the 2011 documentary “Koran by Heart” for the kids to watch. It’s about kids their age from various countries memorizing the Qu’ran, but the reason that I selected the clips so carefully is because I didn’t find it very exciting. It’s about memorizing a 600-page book….and almost all of it is in Arabic/other languages with English subtitles. I thought the kids would be bored, but today they BEGGED me for more. They continue to surprise me!
