Students in Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's (HUC-JIR) New York School of Education present senior capstone projects to the College-Institute community prior to graduation. Students, faculty, family, and guests listen to the inspiring and varied interests represented in the presentations. In the past, students have designed programs for congregational and day schools, family education programs, Hillels, parent or adult education classes, educational travel, or summer camp sessions.
"The purpose of the project is for students to demonstrate their ability to translate content knowledge into rich learning experiences through curriculum planning and design," says Dr. Evie Rotstein, Director of the New York School of Education.
