Teacher Professional Development in Congregational Settings
Stodolsky, Susan; Dorph, Gail Zaiman; Rosov, Wendy
Religious Education, v103 n2 p240-260 Mar 2008
This article describes the impact of sustained professional development programs in two Jewish congregational schools. This research suggests that contrary to common assumptions, part-time teachers in Jewish congregational schools will invest time in professional development when it is of high quality, interactive and engaging and based at their school. These programs have significantly affected teacher collegiality, knowledge of pedagogy and Jewish content, and reflection about teachers' own teaching practices and practice of Judaism. The role of the educational leader is a salient feature of the program success. (Contains 9 footnotes.)
