Dr. Jablon worked as a teacher for 20 years in New York City schools, helping to create schools for teenagers previously disengaged with school, which are now being replicated through funding from the Gates Foundation and others. He continues to work with urban schools throughout the country to utilize effective project-based, interdisciplinary models that rely on personalized relationships between teachers and their adolescent students.At the university, he teaches courses that assist teachers and administrators to create effective science and interdisciplinary programs, peaceable schools, and effective service learning experiences. In many US cities, he leads staff development workshops for the new Small High School programs and has directed many funded programs that have engaged thousands of teachers in more effective inquiry science practices.
