Support For Teachers

“CHAI is well balanced, with different types of activities. Lessons hit on students’ strengths, but some lessons also challenge them. For this reason, teachers may want to modify lessons for students who need extra help. For example, one teacher recently told me she helped a student complete the written responses for a lesson.” --Educator Vanessa Ehrlich, RJE, Educator of Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism in Highland Park, IL
