The aims of the Jewish Education Partner Schools Network

Each year, Facing History selects a cohort of Jewish day schools to join the Facing History Partner School Network, a network of over 150 schools from across the United State that integrate Facing History content and pedagogy schoolwide to transform school culture and improve student outcomes. The Jewish Education Program team provides participating schools with professional development, curriculum resources, and ongoing support for teachers who are implementing Facing History’s social studies, history, civics, ELA and interdisciplinary Judaic content. Teachers receive individualized support, access to Facing History professional development free of charge, and participate in specialized convenings for educators in the network. 

Facing History’s evaluation shows that whole-school implementation of our program leads to increased teacher effectiveness and commitment, improvements in students’ academic and civic learning outcomes, a more respectful classroom environment, and a transformed school culture.

Common Principles of our Partner Schools Network

  • We value the complexities of identity and combat prejudice in our school community.
  • We examine choices of the past and their legacies to inform our choices today.
  • We integrate intellectual rigor, emotional engagement, and ethical reflection.
  • We foster dialogue, empathy, and civic participation.
