Yachad and the International Jewish Resource Center for Inclusion and Special Education will present a five-session webinar series, “Including Special Needs Students into a Limudei Kodesh (Jewish Studies) Classroom and Curricula,” beginning Wednesday January 8, from 12-2 p.m., EST, with its first session, “Edible Torah Projects: A Webinar on Experiential Learning.” The intended audience is day school and yeshiva teachers who include diverse students in their classrooms.
Mrs. Batya Jacob, program director of Yachad and director of the Resource Center, will be the presenter in the first video which will deal with “using food to create fun and easy projects that have to do with each week’s Torah portion.” For the webinar, Mrs. Jacob has chosen Parshat Terumah, which concerns the construction of the Mishkan (Tabernacle).
Future sessions, all of them on Wednesdays, include: February 5, “Using Tech to Teach Diverse Learners Limudei Koshesh” (register by January 27); March 5, “Using Technology to Teach Diverse Learners” (February 24); April 2, “Experiential Learning for the Seder” (March 24); May 7, “Making Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israel Independence Day) Come Alive” (April 30).
