Spring 2016

Jewish Educational Leadership invites articles for Spring 2016 Issue focusing on Teaching the Whole Child. The last few decades have witnessed dramatic increases in the extra-curricular and co-curricular programming for students as schools extend their scope from being institutions of learning to institutions of fostering healthy development and growth. In this issue we focus on how classroom instruction itself can address the whole child.

We are interested in exploring questions such as:

  • Where does Jewish tradition address the social and emotional needs of the student as learner?
  • Where and how can students learn skills of coping with frustration, resilience, and “grit” in the course of their classroom experience?
  • Is the classroom an appropriate venue for learning or reinforcing interpersonal skills?
  • How can we introduce spirituality into Jewish studies learning?
  • What are the best ways to foster skills of leadership and followership in a Jewish studies classroom?
  • What kinds of teaching modes help students grow to be confident adults capable of productive and healthy functioning outside of the school environment?

Abstracts and proposal for articles will be accepted until Jan 31, 2016.

Jewish Educational Leadership is the professional journal for Jewish educators published by The Lookstein Center for Jewish Education. This publication aims to increase the exposure of Jewish educators to general research and advances in education; in particular, it focuses on the applicability of these findings to the world of Jewish education.
