eJP: Field Trips for Everyone

There’s nothing like a field trip to shake things up. And this goes the same for teachers as it does for students. Getting out of your every-day space to see something new is one of the most important practices educators can adopt to feed their own need for learning and professional growth. So once a month the teaching staff at Studio 70, a Jewish Learning Lab in Berkeley CA visits another school, ECE center, or other educational program and spend the morning learning from them. The cost is a couple hours a month, the benefit is truly immeasurable. After two years of adopting this practice, here’s some of what we’ve learned.

eJP: Cohort Based Learning on Local Scale

Whether it’s Steven Covey who said “Interdependent people combine their own efforts, with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success” or... Michael Jordan who said “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships,” the lesson comes through loud and clear and echoes one of the deepest and truest Jewish values.

That’s over 200,000 students each year are enrolled in some kind of supplemental Jewish learning program. Twice as many children are enrolled in supplemental, part time Jewish learning programs in the U.S. than there are students in non-orthodox Jewish day schools. If the vast majority of children doing any formal or informal Jewish learning are doing so after school in supplemental programs, which begs the question: why aren’t more resources and attention paid to our largest demographic of youth learners?
