* 4. RealSchool Summer Sandbox *

RealSchool is an education reform program that has been active in Jewish
day schools for the past two years. This summer RealSchool is giving all
stakeholders in Jewish day schools the opportunity to experience our
model, which is based on an ethos of having hard fun, working
collaboratively, celebrating failure and learning by doing.

Whether you’re an educator, student, administrator, board member or
parent, you’re invited to the RealSchool Summer Sandbox, where you can
join a team of like-minded individuals and have the time and resources
to “play and tinker,” that is, come up with a tangible project in your
area of interest and return to your school ready to implement your new
vision. The idea is to use 21st-century educational innovations to make
a concrete plan to change the way you teach in or run your school.

We’ve suggested team ideas in areas we know stakeholders are passionate
about: project-based learning; digital literacy and citizenship;
community-based learning; and meaning-making in Jewish day schools. We’d
love for participants to create their own teams based on their interests
as well. So get ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work on
creating the classroom and school of the future!

* Lookstein LIVE is offering new opportunities! *

After a year of piloting two new courses, Lookstein LIVE is now making
these courses available to the wider Day School community.

Tal Am/Lookstein LIVE: A new collaboration!

Lookstein LIVE has begun to provide its participating schools with Tal
Am instruction. Our veteran Tal Am teachers here in Israel have begun to
teach into various classrooms across North America, providing not only
the highly interactive and multisensory Tal Am program of Hebrew
instruction but also the added value of “Israel LIVE” teachers who bring
the flavor and spirit of Israel in their teaching. 

Israel: Upfront and Personal

This course takes students on a journey to explore the sites and sounds
of Jerusalem and other selected sites in Israel.  This class can be
catered to a variety of ages from 2nd grade-8th grade, and can either
complement your current Chagim curriculum or an existing Israel
curriculum.  For the Chagim track, the students see how each chag is
celebrated in Israel, and students are brought (through the use of pre
recorded video segments) "live" to locations throughout Jerusalem where
they can view first hand the holiday preparations and celebrations which
are taking place here in Israel.  On Tu B'Shvat, allow your students to "shop
in the shuk" for Shivat HaMinim, and at Pesach time, have your students
go on a virtual journey through the desert.  This class is highly
interactive and students will be kept engaged through the use of
photographs, video clips, and hand movements throughout the session. The
class is offered in both Hebrew and English. 

Mentoring opportunity for School based Hebrew Language Teachers:

As our veteran Lookstein LIVE teachers teach into their classrooms, they
also  model best practices for the school based teachers. Our teachers
have served as Hebrew teaching coaches and allowed the school based
teacher who is in the classroom to practice and learn skills that will
help improve their own skills as Hebrew language teachers.
