The core of the CIE Certificate in Israel Education Program requires each participant to develop and field test a curricular project in the settings in which they work. The projects presented below include: a New York City scavenger hunt which explored how Israel is portrayed in the American public domain; an arts based, multi-sensory approach to Israel education for students in grades 2-5 in which students explore Israel through cooking; music, dance, literature and visual arts; an experiential learning unit about LGBTQ rights in Israel and how they have evolved over time; a student led Yom Ha’atzmaut program with a student created Israel museum in which each grade represented a different aspect about Israel; and, an early childhood education project which uses sensory materials and basic science projects to engage learners.
Projects are designed to replicable in a variety of educational settings.
