“Because of PoP, my 5th grade students are thriving online. They know how to connect with each other, share with each other, work deeply with each other and the content, and I know how to use PoP principles to structure their learning in an online environment so that it gives them voice, connection and meaning.”
– Michelle Janoschek, a PoP teacher at JCDS


“PoP has helped me create curricular materials that support our students in engaging with the text, God and each other in ways I never thought possible. Parents and adults in the community have commented on how sophisticated the learning has become. I love when our students challenge each other with different ideas and wonder out loud about the texts, God and biblical personalities. Thank you for continuing to inspire us!”
– Robin Kahn, Director of Education and Teen Engagement at Temple Israel of Natick, MA

Are you looking for a way to support your students to develop sharp critical thinking skills as well as deep social-emotional capacities? Pedagogy of Partnership can help you. Its approach joins these educational aspirations together into a seamless whole. Pedagogy of Partnership’s Jewish model of learning, rooted in relationship-building, enables students to engage meaningfully with both text and with one another. During this time of uncertainty and physical distancing, relationship building is more critical than ever. PoP provides core principles, activities, language, and routines for teachers to build caring relationships with students and to empower students to do this with their peers and their content—online or in person.

Join Dr. Orit Kent and Allison Cook, developers of this research-based pedagogy for an online introductory training. Experience and focus on teaching techniques that support your students to thrive as whole people through the intentional design of havruta, small group, and even full group learning—online and in person. Translate your learning into practice and meet the upcoming school year with renewed energy and new tools and materials. Participants will have access to follow up webinars in the coming year. School leaders and teams of 2-3 teachers of 3rd grade and up are encouraged to participate! This program is suited to both Jewish studies and general studies teachers. In order to make PoP teaching and learning widely accessible in these challenging times. If you are interested in participating and cost is an obstacle, please contact us at [email protected]
