Today it is clear from research that vocabulary is the most important component of language knowledge. In addition, it has been shown that in second-language courses vocabulary cannot be acquired solely through incidental learning from reading or listening: it needs to be deliberately taught in the classroom. In this talk in Hebrew, on Tuesday, Septemeber 1, 2015 at 22:00 Israel time, Prof. Penny Ur will present a number of practical principles underlying effective vocabulary teaching, with some examples of classroom procedures based on them. These will cover both presentation of new items and further review with the aim of ensuring long-term retention.

Jewish educators and community leaders, this summer you are hereby invited to embark on a fascinating and challenging journey into the realm of Jewish memory in Eretz Israel. This journey is a personal as well as a professional (pedagogical and educational) experience that enhances the sense of belonging and commitment to the Jewish Peoplehood. During this journey, we will read texts and deal with dialogs of present, past, and future. We will tackle the question of the desire to be an inseparable part of the chain of Jewish generations (the dialog between past and present) on the one hand, and the desire to exert an influence on the education - and value-based moral thinking of the future generation on the other.

How do we know what procedures are the most effective when we come to teach Hebrew to beginners? The major source of such knowledge is perhaps our own experience and reflection, enriched by what we have learned from other teachers and from our students. Another very useful source, but one that is not so easily accessible to the busy practitioner, is the research literature. MOFET International invites you to a webinar on Monday, January 26, 2015, 22:00 – 23:30 Israel Standard Time, in which Dr. Penny Ur shall present and discuss a few interesting – and sometimes surprising – research studies that can contribute to our knowledge about how to transmit the new language more effectively to learners.
