How schools can make a difference to students’ thoughts and feelings about Israel…without breaking the bank

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A soon to be published study of Israel education in day schools reveals what day schools can do to have greatest impact on how their students think and feel about Israel. 95 schools participated in this AVI CHAI Foundation funded study, which included a survey of 4,000 students and 400 teachers.

In our session, we’ll explore five ways that elementary, middle and high schools can transform their practices in the classroom and beyond so as to make the greatest difference in students’ lives. We’ll examine how student outcomes differ depending on who teaches about Israel, how they teach and even where the school is located. We’ll also explore how critical differentiated educational practices are for sub-populations of students.
