The Ethics of Being a Jewish Teacher

Thursday, 6 February, 2020 11 Sh'vat 5780

7:30 PM - 9:30 PMLibrary

Professor Morden Shapiro will lead a three-session workshop designed for Darchei Noam members who are actively teaching at any primary, secondary or post-secondary educational institution. Younger members who may be teaching assistants (TA’s) are welcome.

During the sessions, participants will explore their personal ethical compass as a Jewish Teacher (Jewish Teacher:  A Jewish person who is a teacher). Discussion will be rooted in various Jewish teachings and Jewish liturgy.

Morden’s “backstory”

In my experience, most teachers practice their craft with a strong ethical compass. Over the years, I have become increasingly aware that Jewish ethics has the capacity to inform my ethics as a teacher, often adding a new and satisfying dimension to my teaching strategies. This Workshop is my attempt to share this awareness and process with other teachers. Together we will explore the richness of Jewish ethical imperatives as they might inform our day to day activities as teachers…Morden
