Summary This book deals with issues related to challenging students in the classroom, gives age-appropriate methods of instruction, and discusses difficult religious issues unique to the Jewish classroom. It is for everyone associated with or even just interested in Jewish education. Rabbi Daniel Kohn provides ways to improve classroom management and explores the meaning of Jewish Studies and how to create a superior curriculum. He analyzes issues of immediate concern to Jewish educators today, such as the value of "tracking" students, teaching in Hebrew, whether Jewish studies courses should be taught in depth or cover more breadth of material, and whether text study skills or knowledge should be emphasized in such classes.
