This lesson plan offers students to explore questions pertaining to the Muslim custom of veiling as it exists in contemporary society, both in the Middle East and the United States. This topic is particularly relevant as a means of allowing students to understand that modernity is a circumstance created by changing economic circumstances and that veiling, rather than being seen as a “traditional” holdover, is a response to modern circumstances.
