Golden Age Content Developers research, read, organize, and write during the process of crafting Golden Age’s learning packages. These packages include instructional materials as well as systems for institutions to use when educating youth in Sunday schools, summer programs, and other contexts. Instructional materials include teacher’s curricula, student workbooks, and learning activities. The systems which are a part of Golden Age’s learning packages include teacher’s trainings, handbooks on best practices, and tools for program administration.
Golden Age Content Developers determine optimal ways to help students learn and help engineer materials and systems conducive to this goal. They combine existing material with newly created content in their quest to improve Islamic educational programs and create a generation capable of leading the world to a golden age. The Golden Standard, Golden Age’s standard for youth Islamic Education, informs the content which they develop. Finally, Golden Age Content Developers play a role in training teachers on how to deploy Golden Age’s learning packages.
