Don't Evade the Issues! (Training next week - FREE!)


In 1992, the American Association for University Women published a groundbreaking report called "How Schools Shortchange Girls." The report named a variety of topic areas that, while typically avoided in the formal classroom environment, are central to learners' lives, and coined these topics the "evaded curriculum."

Topic areas include:

  • Harassment and bullying
  • Sexuality and relationships
  • Gender bias, gender identity, and sexual identity
  • Eating disorders and body image
  • Substance abuse

Over the last 4 years, Dr. Shira Epstein (JTS) and I have been developing and training educators across the US in a methodology to better address and NOT EVADE these issue facing our youth when they arise in Jewish programs.

Next week, I will be conducting the Second Training Session of the series - and you all are invited to come.
Don't worry if you weren't there for the first training, you won't be lost at all!!
