Faculty Instructors: Climate Justice and Culinary Arts & Anthropology

Genesis is a three/four week residential program at Brandeis University’s Precollege Program, for approximately 75 outstanding high school students from across the world. Admitted students take one of five main “courses”: Climate Justice, Creative Writing, Culinary Arts & Anthropology, World Religions and Theater Arts. Courses generally meet for three hours each morning, Monday-Friday, for three weeks (July 6-24) leading up to a capstone project.

Genesis challenges teens to explore new perspectives, develop and strengthen their voice, and pursue their interests within a dynamic Jewish community. Our faculty lead participants through complex, compelling topics and a range of experiences that encourage critical thinking skills, expose teens to a level of depth of content material and offer teens the opportunity to pose questions that serve to guide the learning process. All of the courses take advantage of experiential learning by using small group work, hands-on learning, collaboration between disciplines, and off-campus visits to relevant places of interest.

Developing and facilitating a course for a group of approximately 15 high school participants that combines the course of study with Jewish themes and wisdom.

-Preparing a course outline with learning goals, supply list and any classroom set-up requests, to be given to the Program Director by May 1, 2020;
