Problem Based Learning in the Judaic Classroom
December 11, 2017 @ 9:20 am - 10:50 am
Rifki Freundlich, Rebetzen at Congregation Tifereth Beth David Jerusalem
This workshop will explore possibilities for engaging high school students in Project/Problem Based Learning in their Tanach classes. PBL has the capacity to meaningfully engage students while deepening their understanding of the material they are expected to learn. While the teaching of Halacha lends itself more easily to this type of instruction, PBL in a Tanach class requires some creativity and a good measure of allowing the students to lead the learning based on their questions and interests. We will review the PBL approach, analyze an authentic PBL experience in a Chumash class from inception to completion, as well as take a new topic and design a PBL approach to teaching it. This exercise will introduce educators to the use of PBL in their classroom and give them the basic tools to implement it.

Rifki was a high school Judaic studies teacher in Atlanta, Georgia for 10 years. She loves studying Tanach and derives great pleasure from coming up with innovative ways to teach it. Her family moved to Montreal last summer when her husband assumed the position of rabbi at the Congregation Tifereth Beth David Jerusalem. She currently teaches classes to women in the community.
