Curriculum and Text Books
The curriculum for the WIS is focused on three key areas: Islamic Studies, Qur'an, and Arabic/Tafseer. Primary texts used within each area are specified below.
Younger levels employ additional material which may include understanding the concepts of Islam and basic Arabic writing through coloring books. Several media presentations related to understanding Islam are presented to students of all levels.
The Islamic Studies books for Al-Salam Sunday Schools are adapted from Weekend Learning Publishers which are based on a comprehensive 10-year curriculum. The curriculum covers broad aspects of Islam based on the Qur’an and authentic Hadith. The lessons in the curriculum are presented in a logical, systematic manner to suit the teaching needs of a weekend Islamic school or home school. Topics are selected based on age, grade and the learning level of each grade.
Students between grade one and seven are divided between the three to five levels of Quran and Arabic. The three levels are Beginners, Intermediate and Advance. Bigger and Intermediate may further be divided into level I and level II depending on the student enrollment and placement. Each student is evaluated and placed in those sections based on his or her level of command on Quran recitation, memorization and understanding.
Arabic and Tafseer
Besides memorization equal emphasis is placed on understanding the meaning and tafseer of Surah being memorized. Arabic language focus is geared towards building vocabulary for understanding the Surah being memorized and learned.
