Dear English teachers and counselors,
This year, the Inspectorate of English will offer a variety of online in-service training courses to develop 21st Century skills.
These courses are part of the Ministry of Education's professional development "greenhouse" program called
איחוד מול ייחוד (Unification versus Specificity) and are a special opportunity for teachers who are interested to learn and work on models for the literature initiative in their classes.
As part of "pedagogical greenhouse", Pedagogical Secretariat, developed a training model that combines online instructional expertise with knowledge in the different disciplines to contribute to the development of a common pedagogical language across the disciplines and in the schools.
