Reflection and Connections: The Other Side of Integration
Kress, Jeffrey S.
Journal of Jewish Education, v76 n2 p164-188 2010
Jewish day schools offer many experiences meant to foster the Jewish development of students. However, these experiences are at risk of being disconnected from one another, complicating a comprehensive approach to addressing issues of identity. This article uses a constructivist approach to identity development to frame the challenges posed by such a fragmentation. Observations of pluralistic Jewish day high schools are brought as illustrations. The author discusses an approach of scaffolded reflection as a way to integrate the identity-enhancing experiences in which a student participates. (Contains 14 footnotes.)
