In the "Golden Oldies" section of the Torah Live course page, there's a Torah Live course titled:
This is a "Teacher Only" course. What does that mean?
It means that there isn't a video playlist like the other Torah Live courses. There is a "teacher presentation". A dynamic slide presentation that YOU the teacher can use in the classroom.
How does it work?
When you click on the "Jealousy" course, you will see a section titled "Premium Content"
Please click on it and then click to open the "Jealousy Presentation" and also download the "Speaker Notes Jealousy":
The presentation will open a new screen with a main menu:
One cannot just go into class and open the presentation and click through the slides for the following reasons:
A. Without the speaker notes, the presentation won't make any sense
B. It's not like the video playlist. This presentation requires the teacher to facilitate it.
For every slide in the presentation, there's a guiding comment in the instructor guide:
You can either start from the beginning of the presentation or start from wherever in the presentation is the most relevant for your students.
How to plan to teach a class with the Torah Live classroom presentation:
Open the presentation and download the instructor guide.
Review the instructor guide and see how the presentation is structured.
Become familiar with the various themes in the presentation and practice facilitating the presentation in the classroom.
The goal is to get the students to respond to the visual on the screen.
The Jealousy presentation starts with a series of slides some of which are babies, like this one:
We can ask the students: Why are we starting with pictures of babies when learning about jealousy?
The instructor guide will guide us here and will tell us that jealousy starts early on in life. You can bring in studies of at what age does a baby start to feel jealous? Our students need to know that jealousy has always been around and it's up to us to learn how to overcome it.
This is just one of many examples on how to teach the jealousy course in the classroom.
Have you taught it in your classroom? We'd love to hear from you!
