Show the Torah Live video on Free Will - "Power of Choice"
Opening questions to ask the class:
• What do you think free will is?
• Why do you think Hashem wanted us to have free will?
• How do we understand free will in a world in which Hashem knows the future?
Setup the classroom for roundtable discussions - Café Dilemma!
Divide up the students into smaller groups and each group will be presented with a dilemma that is connected to free will, for example:
A kid you don’t know at all is being bullied and you are afraid if you interfere the bullies will turn on you
Your best friend wants you to keep a secret but you think she is harming herself and her parents should know
You didn't get invited to a friends party, you were extremely upset about it and tomorrow you will be seeing that friend in class - what will you do?
