Know Children! Commonality, Individuality, and Context in Jewish Community

Would you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree? Young children (and their families) are sometimes judged in Jewish community with a similarly effective metric. Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) is an approach to teaching and learning in a way that nurtures the growth of relationships and holistic development. In this session, participants will explore the three core considerations of Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP): commonality, individuality, and context and consider their implications for Jewish communities.
