Teaching Humash with the Koren Lev Ladaat Humash, Presented by Zvi Grumet

September Date TBA
Free of Charge

In partnership with Koren Publishers, this session for middle and high school teachers will explore the value of teaching Humash driven by questions and exploration. It will focus on two features of the Koren Lev Ladaat Humash, the Classical Commentaries and the Textual Tools, as vehicles to help students become more careful, analytical, and thoughtful learners of Humash and commentaries. Using concrete examples from the text, the workshop will guide teachers through processes that they can replicate and adapt to their own teaching, whether for in-classroom work with the teacher or independent student work. The examples provided will be from the Lev Ladaat humash but the principles learned are applicable to all teachers of humash, regardless of which text they use.
