In this online meeting, we’ll read the newest book from Dr. Jeff Kress and Dr. Maurice Elias Nurturing Students’ Character: Everyday Teaching Activities for Social Emotional Learning.  This easy to use guide will be the foundation for our learning and offers many strategies to incorporate social emotional and character development into your daily practice. Our challenge will be to write a new chapter: How to apply these practices in Jewish settings grounded in Jewish teaching?  Come to learn and to teach.

Participants will be asked to read two chapters (around 20 pages) per session.

When you register you receive a discount code for the book.
