A Wisconsin high school assignment requires students to pretend they are Muslims.

Union Grove High School history teacher Beth Urban sent out an e-mail to students describing a future assignment where the student is asked to put themselves in the shoes of a Muslim.

According to the e-mail obtained by popular radio show host Vicki McKenna, the students were to write a five paragraph essay pretending to be a Muslim. The student is asked to write about the daily struggles that they would face as a Muslim student in the United States. The e-mail goes on to remind the students that class has been watching documentaries that have the facts needed to write the essay.

No word yet on whether future assignments might ask students to pretend they are Christian Copts or Jews living in Islamic countries.
