Shared Learning - Elementary & Middle School

Inspired by a successful model operating in Northern Ireland, the Shared Learning program "twins" an Arab and Jewish classroom through a mutually chosen curricular topic, identified to be of importance to both schools. The Abraham Initiatives mentors the teachers and principals through this process, leading to a series of 8-10 shared classes, taught together by both teachers, and alternating in location between the two schools. The Headquarters for Civic Education at the Ministry of Education has been an early supporter, and is currently considering replicating the program across the Israeli school system.

The Shared Learning program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development.

Supported by the Moises Itzkowich Foundation.
