We are so excited to share with you our new Religious School curriculum for the coming year. Cantor Dunkerley will be introducing the Jewish Education Center of Cleveland's robust K-6 curriculum (linked here through Facebook). The program was developed specifically to address learning needs in the midst of our nationwide pandemic, and takes into consideration the resulting trauma and challenges we have all experienced as a result.
The year-long program will provide our students with consistent and engaging (problem-based, experiential, multimodal) learning activities that are responsive to our current need for virtual learning while at the same time balancing the challenges associated with having to learn at home with parental support. The entire curriculum can also be adapted for in-person learning in the event we are able to transition to that model in the Spring of 2021. The curriculum includes curated boxes of materials provided to K-3 students (at no additional charge) to enhance their experiential learning. Students in grades 4-6 will have weekly challenges which will enable them to work creatively, collaboratively and largely independently.
Cantor Dunkerley will be explaining the program in more detail in a live Zoom meeting on Sunday, July 26 at 9:30 am, our regular Sunday School start time. To register, click here. If you have questions, you can submit them in advance by emailing President@TempleBnaiChaim.org.
If you are unable to join the meeting, a link to view the recorded session will be available on the Religious School page of TBC's website.
We are very enthusiastic about this new curriculum! It includes training and ongoing support for our teachers, ensuring consistency for each class.
