VIRTUAL BOOTCAMP: FACILITATING STUDENT-CENTERED TEXT STUDY
How do we give students ownership over our most sacred and profound Jewish texts? How do we create a text-based Jewish studies classroom environment where students can create lasting Jewish learning experiences and construct their own personal meaning? In this bootcamp, participants will be introduced to a framework of student-centered learning in Tanakh and Torah SheBe’al Peh classrooms and learn how student-centered learning can be applied to Jewish texts. Participants will explore the balance between student empowerment and teacher-directed learning and learn three core competencies/skills that will enable student-centered learning.
