A school in Utah has canceled an assignment in which ninth-grade students were instructed to craft a terrorism propaganda poster.
The point of the task was to help students grasp “the goals of terrorist groups and the methods they use to gain support,” according to a worksheet cited by the Associated Press, which reported that the assignment was given earlier this week at Salem Junior High School, in Salem, Utah.
The teacher “wanted the students to understand how propaganda can be wrong and lead people incorrectly,” Nebo School District spokeswoman Lana Hiskey told the AP.
CBS affiliate KUTV posted pictures of the assignment worksheet, which mentioned the Islamic State, and told students to create a “neat, colored, professional” poster.
The worksheet included a note from the teacher, saying: “If you are uncomfortable with this assignment you may speak to me about an alternative assignment.”
The front of the assignment worksheet listed “8 Reasons Young Muslims Join ISIS.”
