2.	Resource for Pesach (Planning Ahead for Next Year)

I created a 10 plagues Seder kit for classroom use as well as for homes. I am a firm 
believer in fun, hands on, experiential education. 

For those interested in Seder kit details, feel free to contact me directly.

3.	Marshall Memo:  Faculty Book Groups

In this Educational Leadership article, St. Louis principal Thomas Hoerr sings the praises 
of faculty book groups, which he has led for twenty years, some during the summer, 
some during the school year. “When the group works well, everyone learns,” says Hoerr. 

Based on his experience, he has the following recommendations:
-	Book groups should be voluntary.
-	Teachers should have a role in selecting books (perhaps choosing from several 
options).
-	Teachers should facilitate the discussion. “The administrator should provide the food 
and facilities,” says Hoerr, “but the faculty should own the process.”

Hoerr suggests the following criteria for choosing a book: it should offer helpful insights 
to teachers, be well written, and not be too long. 

These are some of the titles that his school’s book groups have discussed:
-	The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (Little Brown, 
2007);
-	Boys and Girls Learn Differently by Michael Gurian (Jossey-Bass, 2001);
-	Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner (Basic 
Books, 1983);
-	Improving Schools from Within by Roland Barth (Jossey-Bass, 1990);
-	A Mind at a Time by Mel Levine (Simon & Schuster, 2003);
-	Mindset by Carol Dweck (Random House, 2006);
-	Social Intelligence by Daniel Goleman (Bantam Books, 2006);
-	Teaching Children to Care by Ruth Charney (Northeast Foundation for Children, 
1991);
-	Warriors Don’t Cry by Melba Beals (Simon & Schuster, 1994);
-	Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel 
Tatum (Basic Books, 1997).

Mifgashim readers have recommended the following books particularly for book groups in 
Jewish day schools:

•	Teaching With Your Mouth Shut, by Donald L. Finkel
•	The Horace series (Horace's Compromise, etc.) by Ted Sizer
•	In Schools We Trust by Deborah Meier
•	Wisdom From All My Teachers: Challenges and Initiatives in Contemporary Torah 
Education. (Saks, J and Handelman, S. (eds.) ATID, Israel and Urim Publications, 
Jerusalem/New York (2003).
•	Tree of Life, Tree of Knowledge by Michael Rosenak.
•	On Jewish Education by Franz Rozensweig
•	Selections from Insecurities of Freedom and Spiritual Audacity and Moral Grandeur 
by Abraham Joshua Heschel
•	Roads to the Palace by Michael Rosenak 
•	Chovat HaTalmidim by Rabbi Kalman Kalonymous Shapira
•	Netivot Shalom Al Chinukh
•	Introduction to the Siddur in Tfillat Yosef - siddur im kitzur perushim haRishonim
•	Visions of Jewish Education by Fox, Scheffler, and Marom
•	Vision at the Heart: Lessons From Camp Ramah on the Power of Ideas in Shaping 
Educational Institutions by Fox and Novak
•	The Skillful Teacher by Saphier and Gower
