An Educator’s Guide for Mahloket Matters: How to Disagree Constructively
The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators (PCJE) is working on a new initiative to integrate Social-Emotional Learning into the Pardes Mahloket Matters curriculum for constructive conflict resolution. Our aim is to equip students with the competencies and resources they need to navigate today’s world, and to support them in transforming challenges into opportunities for growth, connection, understanding, and creative problem-solving.
This interactive, Zoom-friendly lesson (shareable slides included) is designed for teachers to use with students in 4th-6th grade as we approach Shavuot. Celebrating the gift of the Torah as a source of tremendous wisdom in our lives, we explore a different, nuanced understanding of the “golden rule,” V’ahavta L’reacha Kamocha.
The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators, which trains and empowers Jewish studies teachers and experiential Jewish educators to serve as knowledgeable, skilled, reflective and passionate professionals, was delighted to call upon our faculty and alumni to contribute to this updated collection. From our family to yours, stay healthy, stay well, and stay safe – חג שמח!
