This curriculum, originally developed for 7th and 8th graders, is a hybrid of Project-Based Learning and Problem-Based Learning. In each Prism, a guest from the community shares a conundrum that learners work to resolve using the resources in the room and others discovered on their own. Learning blocks are 6-7 weeks in educational programs with 90 minute sessions. Programs with less time per session will need to calendar more weeks of learning.
An Overview (giving all the clues and cues needed to be successful) as well as nine Prisms may be downloaded at no charge:
- Love your Neighbor
- Jewish Responsibility
- Jewish Memory
- Water in Judaism
- Stop It!
- Food Justice
- Science and Judaism
- Tween Engagement
These are all a free download.
Accompanying posters may be purchased for the JECCMarketplace.com for a charge OR enlarged and printed by you.
The Resource Sheets within the curricular documents are formatted for easy duplication. However, to create visual interest in the workspace, poster-sized copies of some of the materials are recommended. Educators that would prefer to order these from the JECC may purchase them on the JECCMarketplace:
