Digital Curriculum

Why Digital? The Lookstein Center’s digital curricula are designed to empower teachers to do what they do best, teach! Each curriculum offers a comprehensive package of excellent, ready-made instructional materials, activities, videos, assessments and more. 

Personalize and individualize learning
Bring Jewish studies to life with engaging and creative content
Save invaluable prep and grading time and spend it with students
Cultivate student voice and choice – fostering deep and meaningful connections

How Does it Work? The Lookstein Center’s digital curricula include instructional materials, multimedia, and assessments—all controlled by the local classroom teacher. Teachers can utilize the learning assets that support their Jewish studies goals, modify what isn’t exactly right, and leave the rest. 

Teachers receive pre-teaching training and ongoing support for tailoring the curriculum to their classroom needs, a teacher’s guide including instructional objectives and pedagogic guidance, and tools for tracking and maximizing student achievement. Curricular materials can be utilized in traditional and blended classrooms.

Sneak Peek:

“…The idea of the teacher being a ‘guide on the side’ instead of a ‘sage on the stage’ really resonated with me. It is difficult to find ways to help students be independent learners and to take responsibility for their own learning, but our conversations during the training helped me understand how a digital curriculum can help create an environment that gives students autonomy over their own learning…the students loved the activities and the videos and I loved that they were taking charge.”
