“Because of PoP, my students thrive. 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 both an in-person and online environment so that it gives them voice, connection, and meaning.”

– Michelle J, PoP coach and teacher at JCDS

“PoP has helped me create curricular materials that support our students in engaging with the text, God and each other in ways I never thought possible. Parents and adults in the community have commented on how sophisticated the learning has become. I love when our students challenge each other with different ideas and wonder out loud about the texts, God and biblical personalities. Thank you for continuing to inspire us!”

– Robin Kahn, Director of Education and Teen Engagement at Temple Israel of Natick, MA
