The Jewish Women’s Archive announces the third annual Natalia Twersky Educator Award to honor an inspiring educator for his/her creativity and commitment to teaching inclusive history. The award, $2,500 to the winning educator plus $500 for her/his school or program, is open to any educator working in a Jewish setting with students in grades 6–12 who spotlights the stories and voices of Jewish women through the use of primary sources. Now is the time to gather your lesson plan, examples of student work, and an optional video of your teaching and submit your lesson online by Monday, May 12, 2014!

 

Named for Natalia Twersky, a champion of Jewish education and the mother of JWA's founding executive director Gail Twersky Reimer, the award is given annually to a teacher working in a formal or informal Jewish setting. The winning educator must demonstrate a commitment to integrating the stories and voices of Jewish women into her/his curriculum through the creative use of primary sources. With the Natalia Twersky Educator Award, JWA honors the work of educators committed to gender-inclusive curricula while also recognizing the schools that support their efforts.
