Differentiating Instruction in the Jewish Studies Classroom
About the Course
As teachers, we want to be able to “teach our students” and not just “teach the content”, in order to engage them and maximize their success. We also want to hone our skill set in order to meet the diversity of learners in our classrooms, whether they need additional support or enrichment.
We all know that every class is composed of a range of students, regardless of whether it is tracked by skill level. Differentiating Instruction (DI) is an effective and manageable method for improving learning outcomes for everyone
Join this course and you will be guided to think more flexibly about your Jewish Studies lessons and the multiple ways they can be developed. We will give you a toolbox of strategies geared towards the age group that you teach. You will create a user-friendly framework for thinking about differentiated teaching based on varied skill levels, learning profiles and interests, and we will explore its application to the texts and concepts that are taught in Judaic Studies classrooms. Through this course you will come away with new skills and concrete ideas about how you can enhance your units of study by using a DI approach, and create an atmosphere of robust and meaningful learning for all students.
UPDATE: Due to popular demand, the February 2024 course is now closed to new registrations.
