Pedagogy of Partnership
Pedagogy of Partnership Midwest Fellowship

Support your students to develop sharp critical thinking skills as well as deep social-emotional capacities



Pedagogy of Partnership (PoP) is working with a cohort of educators and leaders from the Chicago and Detroit areas to implement PoP. This fellowship offers participants a professional development program consisting of online summer institutes and webinars, individual coaching during the school year, access to a suite of PoP teaching materials, and virtual site visits. Educational leaders may receive individualized coaching to help them use PoP frameworks to observe, provide feedback, and lead team meetings.

This tried and true approach supports educators and educational leaders to teach for depth, to build connections among students, their peers, and Torah (and other rich content), and to foster a more caring and creative learning environment.

“PoP has improved my teaching, I know that it has improved student learning. The PoP webinars and mentoring made me a lot more reflective and explicit to my students about what we're doing and why we're doing it. This means students can hopefully better articulate why they're doing what they're doing, where it comes from, and what the outcome should hopefully be.”

- Michael Langer, Jewish Studies Instructor at Frankel Jewish Academy

"I feel like all of my teaching philosophy was suddenly given language and tools that I didn't know existed, and that I could take everything and put it into practice to meet my goals."

- Lianne Gross Philipp, PoP teacher at Chicago Jewish Day School
