For ATT Teachers only, 1 of 2 

DIFFERENTIATED  

      INSTRUCTION FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS                                      (ATT Course Code CP, ID, CD, EP, SE)                             

We teach people with their unique personalities, attitudes, abilities and talents. Thus, as with any of us, one size will not fit  all. Differentiated Instruction (DI) is a practice we can    implement in order to  help every student learn - whether he/she is a novice or ahead of the curve. In this class, we will learn about what DI is, why it matters, and practical ideas and strategies for how to implement it. Common mistakes and pitfalls as well as successful examples will be analyzed and discussed. 

Day and Time: Tuesday evenings, 8:00-9:30 pm

2 Sessions: Tuesdays, October 23 & 30, 2018 (1/2 credit)

Presented by: Mrs. Olivia Friedman, ICJA

TALKING WITH, NOT TO OUR TALMIDIM

     (for Rebbeim of grades 5 - 8)                   (ATT Course Code EP, CD, LK, ID)                             

This class will demonstrate the skills and stances that best  support 5th-8th grade Rebbeim in imparting Hashkafah and other facets of Torah to their Talmidim. It will pay special  attention to the developmental needs - both emotional and cognitive - of Talmidim, while not neglecting the demands of classroom management.  

Day and Time: Wednesday evening, 8:00-9:30 pm

It's hard to believe the 2018 Nathan and Shirley Rothner ATT Summer Program has come to an end. New friendships were made, new skills were learned, and new places were visited. Beautiful masterpieces were created in all the classes, including sewing, cooking, art, rocketry, clay and, jewelry. Self-defense and sports provided ways for enjoying movement and physical activity. Dance, drama, and computers offered opportunities for self-expression. Color War was phenomenal creating so much ruach and excitement. The boys' night trip was a splash and the girls' was a blast.
