And yet, research has shown that it is exactly this type of pedagogy that leads to increased engagement and…

Katz, Meredith – Journal of Jewish Education, 2015
In this article I investigate how one group of teachers deliberated about Israel education with the intention to "modify the myth" as they engaged in curriculum reform.
