Designing a curriculum model for the teaching of the Bible in UK Jewish secondary schools: a case study

  • by: Eli Kohn, The Lookstein Center

This paper describes the process of designing a curriculum model for Bible teaching in UK Jewish secondary schools. This model was designed over the period 2008–2010 by a team of curriculum specialists from the Jewish Curriculum Partnership (JCP) UK in collaboration with a group of teachers from Jewish secondary schools.

The paper first outlines the context of UK Jewish secondary schools and then the curriculum context in which this specific model was designed. It then details the model itself and concludes with a discussion of the implementation of the model and associated challenges.
