8th Grade MIT (Madrichimot In Training) Program
MIT is a weekly class for students in grade 8 who are interested in learning to teach in our Youth and Family Education program. MIT attend classes in which they learn about child development, classroom management, learning and teaching styles, lesson planning and implementation and deepen their Judaic knowledge. They will also spend time observing what is going on in our Youth and Family Education classrooms.
MIT is full-year, weekly commitment. Classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:00-11:45 am. Students will attend the MIT class every other week and the 8th grade The Emanu-El Fellowship (TEF) class on the alternate weeks. Students who complete the program will be eligible to become paid teachers in our program for the following school year. Completing the program includes regular weekly attendance (make up sessions are required for excessive absences), preparing and teaching a lesson and demonstrating competence in the content areas presented.
MIT is a leadership-training program for teens who desire to work closely with younger children in a Jewish environment. This program is good preparation for summer camp counseling jobs as well as future employment in religious schools.
There is an additional fee of $250 for MIT, and students must be enrolled in and regularly attend The Emanu-El Fellowship program. If you are interested, please complete the application and send it back with a check made out to “Congregation Emanu-El”. Please put MIT in the memo line. If participation in the program does not work out, the check will be returned to you.
All applications must be received by August 17, 2021; however, we encourage you to apply early.
