ATT Teacher Education Class - The New Emunah and Hashkafa Curriculum part 2

7:30-9:00 pm
2828 W. Pratt Blvd
Chicago


For ATT Teachers

THE NEW אמונה והשקפה  CURRICULUM   INITIATIVE:  PART 2                                   ICJA LIBRARY             

        (for Judaic studies teachers of grades K-8; applicable whether or not you participated in Part 1)

                                                                                          (ATT Course Code LK, ID)   

The ATT is in the process of developing an אמונה והשקפה curriculum that can be smoothly integrated into the already existing  חומש/נביא/פרשה content.  The goal is to provide a resource for teachers that would include developmentally appropriate foundational  אמונה והשקפה “talking points” rooted in the pesukim that are already being taught.  The  resource would also include supplemental source material, as well as ideas for integration (stories/mashalim/activities).  This session will include an update of the initiative, and   mostly, time will be spent asking you to partner with us by giving feedback on selected samples and helping create some of the integrative activities.

Day and Time:  Wednesday evening, 7:30-9:00 pm

Session: 1 session, Wednesday, May 6, 2015 (1/4 credit)

Presented by: Rabbi Yitzchak Lurie, Education Consultant
