This article is based upon a qualitative research study that examined 95 school stories written by Jewish female teacher candidates in an undergraduate education course. Many candidates wrote inspirational or humorous stories about growth and development or a special teacher. However, over one third of the narratives described painful Jewish day schooling episodes with insensitive teachers, stinging rebukes, or public shaming.

The Journey of Novice Teachers: Perceptions of Interns from a Teacher Training Program for Academics
The literature (Harari, Adler, & Shechter, 2007) discusses at length the difficulties that teachers experience when they start teaching and the number of people leaving the profession due to those difficulties (Arviv-Elyashiv & Zimmerman, 2013). This article discusses the characteristics of the journey for novice teachers from the Teacher Training Programs for Academics as experienced by them during their first year of teaching. The study focused on several aspects of this journey: experiences of success and failure, factors that promote and inhibit success during their internship, the extent to which novice teachers identify with the comparison immigrants in a new culture (Zabar Ben-Yehoshua, 2001), and changes the teachers experienced throughout the year.

In an attempt to remedy the problem with Israelis and their ability to speak English, the Education Ministry recently approved a tuition-free English teaching course to be implemented throughout the country and help better train future English teachers. Starting this upcoming school year, all Israeli colleges are invited to apply for a part of the NIS 12 million budget and offer this free government-run course to native English speakers who are interested in learning how to teach English to local children.

Comparing the Effectiveness of Two Models of Initial Teacher Education Programmes In Israel: Concurrent Vs. Consecutive
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effectiveness of two common models of initial teacher education programmes that are prevalent in many countries, including Israel. The two are: the concurrent model, in which disciplinary studies and pedagogical studies are integrated and taught at the same time; and the consecutive model, which focuses mostly on pedagogy following the disciplinary studies already completed by university graduates interested to go into teaching.

The Global Citizenship Education Gap: Teacher Perceptions of the Relationship Between Global Citizenship Education and Students’ Socio-Economic Status
The present study examined Israeli secondary school teachers' perceptions of global citizenship education (GCE), concentrating on the socio-economic makeup of the schools' population. The study illuminates how teachers' perceptions of their students' mobility and the imagined futures that teachers attribute to their students may shape teaching. The study involves in-depth, semi-structured interviews with fifteen Israeli teachers at schools catering to student populations of various socio-economic backgrounds within the public, secular Jewish school sector. The study provides evidence of a GCE gap involving students, schools, and teachers, shedding light on this gap's possible consequences. Policy implications of the GCE gap and future research trajectories are introduced and discussed.

How Can We Make Israel More Than Just a Holiday?
Author Sasha Kopp
As a teacher in Jewish early-childhood settings for over six years, I observed implementation of a wide variety of Israel curriculum. This experience inspired me to write my masters project about Israel education at a typical synagogue-based early-childhood program in Los Angeles. I interviewed 21 educators across a span of religious and ethnic backgrounds, including over a third non-Jews. Teachers were asked about their initial exposure to Israel, how they teach Israel in their classroom, and how they use Hebrew in their curriculum.

Scaffolding to Promote Critical Thinking and Learner Autonomy Among Pre-Service Education Students
This study explored the use of a scaffolding technique in order to develop critical thinking skills and dispositions while using the infusion method of teaching critical thinking within the context of specific subject matter. Two specific skills were examined: the students were asked to compare and contrast Biblical textual stories (analysis) and then to generate abstract categories to describe the elements they had compared (evaluation).The disposition examined was the self-confidence to reason independently, without teacher direction, in order to encourage learner autonomy.

Blessed Are You Who Gathers the Scattered Am Yisrael – And What About Us? - The Youth Shaliach Program at Bnei Akiva Schools, Toronto Canada
The structure of the current program includes four young Shlichim, who come to Canada for one of the two academic semesters of a year. The Shlichim, education students towards the end of their degrees, are integrated into the school as teachers, youth leaders, educators and ‘big brothers’. The first and most important level of the shlichim's work is that they bring a taste of Israel to Canada.
