7th grade world history. And we were starting the chapters on the Middle East. Which meant we were discussing Islam.
The assignment consisted of reading about and doing a project about the Five Pillars of Islam.
Reading the chapter was slightly painful. I did not realize there were so many ways to pronounce Arab, Arabia, Muhammad, Mecca, Muslim, et cetera. I gently corrected. Some of them barreled through and tried to skip the new vocabulary.
We got to Koran. A student raised her hand. And gently corrected my pronunciation.
I let her guide us on pronunciation after this. Because I got pretty quickly that this was her religion we were talking about. And I'm no expert, so I'll go with someone who knows what she's talking about, even if she is a 7th grader.
Well, a 7th grader raised Muslim will know a lot more about it than me.
