Pedagogy of Partnership Midwest Fellowship

“Because of PoP, my students are thriving online. They know how to connect with each other, share with each other, work deeply with each other and the content, and I know how to use PoP principles to structure their learning in an online environment so that it gives them voice, connection and meaning.”
– Michelle Janoschek, middle school PoP teacher at Boston’s Jewish Community Day School

About the Pedagogy of Partnership Midwest Fellowship

Are you looking for a way to support your students to develop sharp critical thinking skills as well as deep social-emotional capacities? Pedagogy of Partnership can help you. Because Pedagogy of Partnership’s Jewish model of learning is rooted in relationship-building, PoP supports students to engage meaningfully with both text and with one another, joining these educational aspirations together into a seamless whole. During this time of uncertainty and physical distancing, relationship building is more critical than ever. PoP provides core principles, activities, language, and routines for teachers to build caring relationships with students and to empower students to do this with their peers and their content.

Pedagogy of Partnership (PoP) will train a cohort of educators to implement PoP online as well as in person. This fellowship offers participating educators a professional development program consisting of online summer institutes, coaching during the school year, and access to a suite of PoP teaching materials. This tried and true approach supports educators 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—online and in person.


Mazal tov to our partner schools, administrators and teachers for a wonderful year!
