Introduction to Shoshana Golan

My name is Shoshana Golan and I am teaching at Perelman Jewish Day School.  I came from Israel with a mission to teach Hebrew and Judaic studies to pass the love of the culture and bring life to Israel.  My goal is to have kids want to visit Israel and maybe one day live there.   I want the students to understand how important Israel is.  This summer I am taking a class called Brain and Behavior Institute at Bryn Mawr College because I want to get more ideas about how to understand every student with his or her special needs.  I also want to increase students' motivation to learn and succeed.

Possible Summer Project Topics

I am thinking about a variety of possible topics for my summer projects. 

Possible things to explore within the context of the brain and bahavior:

  • delayed gratification
  • persistense
  • motivation - intrinsic and extrinisic
  • development of executive function in early childhood
  • learned helplessness

Teaching should only be...

Post Day 2-session one.

Looks like there is only one legitimate purpose for teaching---helping kids learn about the functioning, care and manipulation of their own brains.
