BJE March of the Living Teen Michael Schulman Reflections on his Experience

BJE March of the Living Teen Michael Schulman Reflects on the Trip

Jul 11, 2017

By Michael Schulman

The March of the Living trip was by far one of the most meaningful things that I have done in my life. It was truly something I will never forget. I am so thankful and privileged that I had the opportunity to go this year with an amazing staff and most importantly five incredible survivors. The stories of the survivors were inspirational, and I am even more amazed that after all the horrible things they have experienced they are able to maintain a positive attitude in every aspect of their life.

Let Freedom Ring!

Mar 15, 2017

The unlimited availability of information at the push of a button makes teaching and learning altogether different, today, than in the (ever more remote) 20th century.  Education is not about mastery of a body of knowledge; it’s about processing, synthesizing and wisely applying abundantly available information.  Project-based learning and collaborative problem solving are, appropriately, increasingly at the core of students’ educational experiences.
