Classroom Management in Online, In-person, and Blended Environments
Kehillah Lomedet
– Community of Learners

  • How complete is your toolkit as a teacher?

  • What are the ways you engage each and every learner in your work?

  • How prepared are you to teach in an era of physical distancing?

We invite teachers with 0-5 years of experience in Jewish educational settings to join our community of learners for a one-time session focused on the art of engaging all learners in the educational process. Guest presenter Arnold Rotenberg will engage participants in an interactive session that explores theories, ideas, and values that guide our efforts to create focused and productive learning environments. The session will model ways to engage learners and help them stay on task. The workshop will include ideas and practices ready for immediate use in your teaching environment.

This workshop is offered as part of an eight-part series partnership with Studio 70 and designed as a Kehillah Lomedet, a Community of Learners, for teachers in K-6 supplementary programs. While we designed this with congregations in mind, we welcome educators from JCCs, camps, day schools, and other teaching and learning environments.

Presenter Bio

Arnold Rotenberg

I am the Director of Congregational Jewish Living at Congregation Gates of Heaven in Schenectady, NY (upstate NY), a position that has grown to include the roles of Director of our Religious School, Adult Education, and programs throughout. I come with over 40 years’ experience in synagogue and day school education. Even with this, I am always a teacher at heart, modeling lifelong learning as an example to our students and teachers. My background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Education from the University of Denver and a Master of Arts in Education from the University of Colorado in Denver.  Learning is a part of my life. I have the same expectations for your children as I do mine — to see them excel and become engaged in Jewish life and become productive human beings. I invite you to join me on this journey.
