Welcome!

One of the reasons behind forming this was group was to address some of the issues that are unique to Judaic studies teachers. Just as a way to get the discussion started I am going to list some of the issues that I am currently dealing with and my hope is that this will spark future discussions.
Topics/Issues
1. Establishing Benchmarks and Standards for the Judaic studies curriculum
2. Incorporating 21st Century Skills and Technology within the Judaic Studies curriculum
3. What do we want a graduate from a Jewish Day School to look like
4 Ivrit B'Ivrit
5. Making Tefilah more meaningful

I would like to welcome Jeff to our growing group. 

Again I think in order for us to grow and become a true PLN we need to share ideas with each other. If you are posting blogs or other links please share them here as well so that we can all gain from each other. 

please check out my latest post for C.P. about teacher evaluations http://www.connectedprincipals.com/archives/2856 

Looking forward to learning together with all of you 

Have a great Day

I want to welcome Jonathan to our group. 

As I have said many times we should be sharing and posting ideas so that we can all learn from each other. I also believe that if we posted more and this group was more active more people will join. 

Have a great day!
