The Melton Research Center for Jewish Education offers innovative projects that create pedagogies of engagement, active learning, and personal meaning in Jewish schools and informal settings. The author argues that effective pedagogies will take Jewish content seriously while promoting the application of that content to learners' own lives. He describes several curricular models currently in use, as well as a standards and benchmarking project.
