Stacey Dinarello

During the summer 2004, Ms. Dinarello and her partners—who include teachers across Massachusetts—travel to East Africa as part of a Fulbright Scholarship to learn about Muslim societies in Kenya and Tanzania. The group visits mosques, schools, and cultural sites to develop curricula that help change student perceptions of Islam and African life and culture. Upon their return, the group meets throughout the year to reflect on their experiences and share methods for refining their curricula.
