NATE Summer Webinar Series 2013
Toolboxes of Excellence - NATE Summer Series 2013
You've heard the hype about Project Based Learning, now it is time to put it into practice. Join us for a summer learning series that used Ron Berger's An Ethic of Excellenceas our guide to thinking through implementing PBL in Jewish learning settings. Throughout the series, you'll have the opportunity to hear from pioneers in the field and share you own thoughts. Each participant is encouraged to read An Ethic of Excellence before our first session.
Session 1 - Creating a Culture of Excellence Tuesday, June 25 -- 1:00 EDT In this session, we will hear from educators who have changed the culture of their school community. Whether it is the "Religious School sucks" attitude or the way families in the school relate to each other, Berger identifies the first step in Excellence as creating a culture conducive to doing meaningful learning.
Session 2 - Designing Work of Excellence Tuesday, July 9 -- 1:00 EDT What does it mean to have high standards in part time educational settings? Can thematic or project based curricula really teach everything we want students to know? How can I make student work public? Educators who have worked through this issues will share about their experiments designing work that is truly excellent.
Session 3 - Engaging Teachers of Excellence Wednesday, July 17 -- 1:00 EDT (NOTE: date change in observance of Tisha B'Av) This session will focus on the staffing implications of using Berger's philosophy. We will hear from schools that have worked to mentor current teachers and have trained the teachers of tomorrow through thoughtful madrichim programs. How can we best implement these more time-intensive-for-teachers strategies without inviting a mass exodus of our staff?
