Teaching Teachers

By Alex Pomson, Michael Brown, Sydney Eisen

Centre for Jewish Studies at York University, Fall 2000

The booklet entitled "Teaching Teachers" was released in the fall of 2000 to mark the inauguration of the Koschitzky Chair in Jewish Teacher Education at York University's Centre for Jewish Studies. Following a brief foreword by Michael Brown, two essays are presented. The first, entitled "Partners in Meeting Community Needs: Jewish Education at York University," written by Alex Pomson, Michael Brown, and Sydney Eisen, presents an outline of the educational philosophy and the technical aspects of the Jewish Teacher Education Program at York University, so as to show how it has helped meet the personnel needs of community schools. The second essay, entitled "Becoming Teachers: Alumni Tell Their Stories," written by Alex Pomson, presents the career stories of three alumni who participated in a York Faculty of Education study in 1999, which investigated how committed individuals understand the concept of a teaching career.
