Join Judaic Studies leaders from day schools across North America to learn practical strategies for differentiation in the elementary and middle school Judaic Studies classroom (with a focus on grades 3-8) that you can bring back to your faculty. We will also explore a checklist for observing lessons, steps for assessing what elements to prioritize and address, and tools for providing effective feedback using a strength-based approach.
