The Traditional Lesson Planning Model Has Failed Jewish Educators… Time for a New Model – Jeducation World

The Traditional Lesson Planning Model Has Failed Jewish Educators… Time for a New Model – Jeducation World | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
The lesson planning process I learned five decades ago will sound far too familiar to readers who are teachers or prospective teachers. Some of the language has changed over the years but the approach has remained the same. And it is not working. All evidence points to the fact that this approach has never been a good fit for Jewish educators and is now completely inadequate for Jewish experiential and informal Jewish educators (those working in non-school settings). The model fails in three ways: A) Does not encourage creative thinking; B) Limits what can be taught; C) Does not address needs of experiential educators or educators in informal settings.

MOFET JTEC - Financial Constraints on Intensive Jewish Education: The Interactive Effects of Financial Capacity and Jewish Connections

MOFET JTEC - Financial Constraints on Intensive Jewish Education: The Interactive Effects of Financial Capacity and Jewish Connections | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

This paper examines the independent and interactive effects of financial capacity and Jewish connections on reported constraints in purchasing two intensive forms of Jewish education, day school and overnight summer camp. The analysis is structured around three hypotheses: (1) financial capacity is inversely related to constraints on Jewish education; (2) Jewish connections increase or decrease the level at which financial capacity determines financial constraints on Jewish education; (3) the strength of the inverse relationship between financial capacity and financial constraints on Jewish education varies by the strength of Jewish connections.

MOFET JTEC - Equality? Inclusion? Do They Go Hand-in-hand? Policy Makers' Perceptions of Inclusion of Pupils with Special Needs – An Exploratory Study | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Using Critical Discourse Analysis, this study aims to elicit and expose the perceptions and attitudes of different policy makers in leadership positions at the Ministry of Education in Israel with regard to inclusion. The findings point to a sensitive situation, one that is difficult to deal with and creates much disagreement. Although inclusion is the official and unanimously agreed upon policy, the discourse reflects some differences between and within groups of policy makers with regard to several issues: identification of the target population; factors and key figures affecting implementation and teacher training.

MOFET JTEC - The Yeshiva Day School System — Costs and Considerations | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Personally, I believe that an honest consideration of the totality of yeshiva day schools’ costs — both financial and non-financial — leads to the conclusion that the current model is unsustainable and must change. Here, I share what I see as the costs and, in a following piece, I will propose a change to the Yeshiva day school model that addresses those costs.

On Sunday the thirteenth of Sivan, David Kiddushim z’l was laid to rest in Jerusalem. Most Jewish educators around the world would not know of this remarkable soul from the Tunisian island of Djerba. But my work in North Africa with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee gave me the great privilege and honour to meet David and his wife Tzivia when they were at the height of their educational activity.

Yeshiva day schools: Give parents a choice

Yeshiva day schools: Give parents a choice | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

This piece, the follow up to my recent discussion of the financial and non-financial costs of yeshiva day schools, proposes what I respectfully submit is a relatively simple and intuitive solution to this fundamental flaw in the yeshiva day school model. Put in place, it would radically alleviate yeshiva day school costs without compromising our children’s Jewish education, and potentially make that education more effective and lasting.

MOFET JTEC - The Basis of Reading Fluency in First Grade of Hebrew Speaking Children | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

The present study examines the contributions of several different cognitive and literacy skills to reading fluency in Hebrew among Grade 1 students. The main objective of the study was to examine what predicts word reading fluency at two crucial points during Grade 1: mid-year, before a multi-tiered intervention, and again 12 weeks later at the end of the year, after the intervention. A total of 47 first graders in Israel were assessed on cognitive and literacy tasks before and after an implementation of intervention.

The first word most people give when describing the International Society for Technology in Education or ISTE conference which took place this past week in Denver, Colorado is overwhelming. With its 15,000+ participants, presenters, and vendors running dozens of events simultaneously throughout the four days of the conference, it can be a daunting experience especially for first time attendees. However, if at the conference, there was a way to create a mini-conference, a small group within this vast stream of people that would be very advantageous.

Yeshiva day schools: Give parents a choice

Yeshiva day schools: Give parents a choice | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

That solution is for yeshiva day schools to alter their schedules in a way that allows parents to choose to either send their children to yeshiva day school for a full-day program (Jewish studies and secular studies) at full cost, or to send their children to yeshiva day school for a part-day program (Jewish studies only) at dramatically lower cost. Students opting into the part-day program could utilize their local public schools for secular studies.
