The Second Annual Frisch RealSchool Summer Sandbox is coming, July 21-13, 2014 at The Frisch School in Paramus, NJ. The Sandbox is a time for you, someone who is passionate about Jewish education, to get together with those who are like-minded in order to make a project you can implement in your educational setting. Our focus this year is on creativity: how to imbue it into the classroom; use it to redesign your courses; and make space for it in the larger educational setting.


Following is the schedule for the 2014 Summer Sandbox:
