What Do We Mean by Jewish Education in Professional Development for Early Childhood Education?
Journal of Jewish Education, v79 n3 p335-359 2013
In this study we investigated the perceptions and interpretations of 14 various stakeholders in the field of teacher preparation and early childhood education regarding what and how Jewish education should be learned and taught, in general, and to preschool children in contemporary Israel, in particular. The present study, carried out in the spring of 2011, employed an "ethogenic" methodology (Harré & Secord, 1972), such that that the interpretations of Jewish education were extracted from the respondents' written statements about what they consider Jewish education and what they believe the implications are for teaching students and young children in Israel.
