Strengthening Research on the Pedagogy of Jewish Studies: Introduction to a Suite of Articles on Teaching Bible
The three research papers included in this suite share a number of obvious features, as well as some others that may be less obvious. The most obvious common feature is that all three articles are studies of the teaching of Bible. And all three study the teaching of Bible within Jewish educational settings, at least in part. Cousens, Morrison, and Fendrick study a Reform adult Jewish educational program. Tanchel studies a pluralistic Jewish high school. My own article offers a comparison of teaching by one instructor in two different settings, an adult Jewish educational program and a nonsectarian university.
