#FailureFridays is a class-wide program that integrated daily social and emotional learning (SEL) with curricular lessons to foster a greater appreciation for risk taking and failure. Students applied critical and creative thinking to Tanach study, engaged in daily journaling, and discussed their setbacks and successes at a weekly class meeting.
