Open to: Full-time PreK-12 Classroom Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Rabbi Jonathan Sacks wrote, “The single greatest antidote to violence is conversation.” With the help of ancient scriptural texts and contemporary voices from both traditions, participants will consider how to engage religious identity in ways that lead to healthy self-criticism and deeper mutual appreciation.
During this three session course participants will do the following:
- In the first two sessions, learn from Duke Divinity School professors Antepli and Davis
- In the third session, exchange ideas with other brilliant teachers.
Participants will complete homework for each.
This program is free for public and charter school teachers. Participants will be selected by application and nomination.
CTLE-credit is available.
