Lights, Cameras, Action Research!--Moviemaking as a Pedagogy for Constructivist Israel Education
Backenroth, Ofra; Sinclair, Alex
Journal of Jewish Education, v81 n1 p64-84 2015
In this article we analyze moviemaking as a unique pedagogy that is used in a preservice semester in Israel program for the preparation of Israel educators: Students create their own short films about an aspect of Israeli society and/or their relationship with it. We analyze the students' movies, together with students' reflective papers about the process of making them, and show how this pedagogy exhibits the major characteristics of progressive constructivist education. We also show how the pedagogy enables students to grapple with difficult aspects of Israel in a personally compelling fashion.
