JED 510 - Fundamentals and Orientation in Jewish Education

The activities of Jewish learning are ultimately linked to more fundamental assumptions about the nature of knowledge, human growth, and Jewish purpose. Methodologically, this class looks beneath the surface of the educational activities to find the visions that guide them. It is a Jewish version of what the education scholar Stephen Brookfield characterizes as the "assumption hunting" game. The sharp contrasts between the educational philosophies of Michael Rosenak and Mordecai Kaplan will be among the tools used to further this investigation.
