OUR APPROACH TO PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION

OUR APPROACH TO PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION

גישתנו לחינוך מתקדם

Einstein Academy integrates progressive education throughout its program. Progressive education is deeply aligned with Jewish learning and finds its roots in experience, emphasizing learning by doing and integrating the curriculum around themes or driving questions with an emphasis on the skills that will be needed in the future, as the Jerusalem Talmud (Brachot 5) says, "If you understand the why and wherefore of what you learn, you do not forget it quickly."

 

Progressive education involves a strong emphasis on life-long learning, problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and social-emotional learning. It values highly personalized, differentiated learning that puts the student at the center, with the teacher as the guide of that learning and uses authentic means of assessment, evaluating student learning through projects and real-world tasks. Additionally, progressive education emphasizes the community and service learning, encouraging students to consider their impact on society and their obligation to do good.
