Reimer, Joseph – Journal of Jewish Education, 2018

Zigmond, Leah – Journal of Jewish Education, 2018
Veteran staff members play a key role in a camp's success. They preserve camp culture, maintain traditions, and serve important roles in the peer-training environment that camps depend on.

Hassenfeld, Ziva R. – Journal of Jewish Education, 2018
Inquiry-oriented pedagogy is a difficult pedagogy to enact in the classroom. By placing students' questions and textual ideas at the center, the teacher opens the door to unanticipated and sometimes off-the-wall comments in text discussion. And yet, research has shown that it is exactly this type of pedagogy that leads to increased engagement and…
