Adult Education in Israel V.
Kirmayer, Paul, Ed.; Michaelson, Serena T., Ed.
This fifth journal edition focuses on the didactics of adult education in Israel. Following a "Preface" (Meir Peretz) discussing the didactics of adult education, three major fields are examined: Learning for Adults; Hebrew Language and Culture for Immigrants; and Special Populations (adults with learning disabilities, senior citizens, and parents). Eighteen papers are included, organized in five sections. Two papers are included in the "General Views of Adult Education" section: "The Effects of Social, Technological and Personal Changes on the Learning Habits of Adults" (Rachel Tokatli) and "Adult Education: Learning and Knowledge" (Israel Katz). One paper is featured in the "Didactics of Adult Education" section: "Didactics of Adult Education at a Crossroads: Reflections" (Paul Kirmayer). Two papers make up the subsection on "Learning for Adults": "Can Adults Have a Second Chance?" (Ora Grebelsky); "Art in Tehila: Moments of Creativity" (Chaya Meiri-Minerby, Naomi Casuto, Leah Tzur). The subsection on "Hebrew Language and Culture for Immigrants" includes "'Roots' and 'Treetops' What Kind of Hebrew Should Be Taught and Learned in the Hebrew Language Ulpan?" (Riva S. Perlmutter); "Jewish Music as a Mirror of History" (Zeev Nusimovici); and "Jewish and Israeli Identity Among Immigrants" (Moshe Adorian). The "Special Populations" subsection includes "Learning Disabilities in the Adult World" (Israel Winkler); "Is There a Need for an Alternative to the Group in Parent Training?" (Rina Cohen); and "Facilitating Older Adult Learning" (Pnina Lampert Tzabari). The Happenings and Publications section includes five papers: "Encounter between Israelis, Palestinians and Citizens of Arab Countries" (Ephraim Lapid); "Learning to Live Together in the Middle East--A Personal Perspective" (Ruth Blum); "An Adult Education Course for Participants from Developing Countries" (Moshe Adorian); "In Memorium Shulamit Katznelson" (Editors); and a report on 11 publications published in 1998-99 by the Israeli Ministry of Education "Publications: The Cream of the Crop" (Yehudit Orensztajn).
