How to infuse you classroom with Hebrew, Israel and Judaic
(Approximately 90 minutes)
The session will begin with the Big Picture- the state of Jewish education, particularly early childhood education against the backdrop of the state of the American Jewish community (Pew report). It will continue with promoting Purposeful Teaching- Jewish teachers are heroes because we wake up each morning with a mission, open the door to our classroom and do the holy work of insuring Jewish continuity – through instilling knowledge, tools, skills and inspiration in each of our students! The bulk of the session will fuocus on the Practical- I will give examples of tools, ideas, inspiring true stories, methods and resources that educators can apply in classrooms on the first day of school and throughout the year!
We will also open the floor to collaborate with other educators to share successes.
The session will conclude with Pondering, reflection and Q&A.
