Expanding from 6 schools with 87 students in the initial pilot year (2007/08) to a total of 15 schools with 686 students in the first to third grades currently using TaL AM for their Hebrew-language and Jewish studies instruction, based on the evaluation methodology devised for TaL AM, pilot school students show a growing proficiency in the Hebrew language and display much enthusiasm for TaL AM classes. These initial accomplishments are especially important in an environment where exciting students about their Hebrew and Jewish study classes is a growing challenge, with many parents often finding these subjects foreign and academically unnecessary for their children’s education. The expanded pilot has also created a buzz in other Jewish day schools in the FSU, with many requests to bring TaL AM to their classrooms.
