muse: n. a source of inspiration

Living the Legacy

I’m blessed and honored to be part of this summer’s Jewish Women’s Archive 2010 Institute for Educators. To say that the caliber of people at this conference is high would be quite the understatement.

This morning we had a presentation by Debra Schultz, author of Going South: Jewish Women in the Civil Rights Movement. It was a terrific conversation. Besides being a wonderful resource on the topic of Jewish women and the civil rights movement, it really got me thinking about Debra as a role model; a woman who found something that sparked her interest and did a remarkable job of following up on her interest.

We also heard from several educators from Primary Sources. I’ve taught with primary sources before, but this was a good way to formalize one’s approach to teaching with primary sources. The website is a great resource.

And, to boot, the weather in Boston is awesome. We just ate lunch outside. Outside! I haven’t been outside for weeks, I think.
