A five session course on social and philsophical discussions of Zionism
The course is meant to use primary sources, academic articles, and newspaper op-ed to guide discussion sessions on Israel. Topics include visions of Zionism, the Ultra-Orthodox, Israeli Arabs, the Israeli Supreme Court, and future challenges to Zionism.
The program seeks to educate students on items not often discussed in the news and to show them a different, more social and philosophical side of pro-Israel activism.
1. Recruit students to participate in fellowship. Use email and word of mouth.
2. Prepare for each session. Find original and interesting source materials.
3. Host discussion session. Prepare questions to guide the sessions along.
Make sure you spend plenty of time preparing for each session.
Source sheets. See attached.
$150 stipends per student. Printing and education materials.
Depends on personal interests and knowledge. Prepare based on source sheets.
We used email and word of mouth to recruit students to participate in all five sessions.
I would have liked to have had more than five sessions. Need to cover less material per session.
