History, Culture and Politics on Modern Israel
Application Deadline: March 15, 2018
Building upon the previous successes of the Institute for the Study of Modern Israel (ISMI), Center for Israel Education (CIE) offers the CIE/ISMI Educator Enrichment Workshop on Modern Israel: a five-day opportunity for educators and educational leaders to deepen their understanding of Israel’s history, politics, economy and culture, while cultivating participants’ skills in classroom application and best practices. After collaborating with experts and peers, and honing their instructional practices, Educator Enrichment Workshop alumni are uniquely positioned to foster understanding of the significance of Zionism and the State of Israel in Jewish and world history for generations of students.
The CIE one-week workshop offers a comprehensive understanding of modern Israel and provides a wide array of tools for curriculum development and teaching. Workshop sessions are designed to reflect the needs of our participants, whether adding content or providing additional teaching ideas for curriculum and lesson plan development. The workshop is led by experienced curriculum, academic, and content specialists. Sessions are conducted from Sunday afternoon until Thursday afternoon. Each day is filled with content, curriculum development sessions, and time for reflecting and processing ideas culled. We anticipate that each teacher will leave the workshop with newly developed Israel curriculum materials, and encourage participants to bring previously created Israel curriculum to the workshop for assessment and possible augmentation.
