Hebrew for What? – Hebrew at the Heart of Jewish Day Schools

  • Yaakov Nadler

    This report is so important for Jewish Educators. I think the recommendation to encourage teachers to be trained in second language instruction is very important. Many teachers are just replicating what didn’t work when they were in school because that is what they know. As a Hebrew teacher I try to follow what the research on L2. Speak in the target language, have the students speak in the target language and create an immersive Hebrew environment in and out of the classroom and the students are making tremendous progress and they are excited to learn in a Hebrew.
