Introduction to online CPD resources
Below you will find the Presentation and Booklet for our CPD 2022/2023 workshop. Teachers may wish to print or download the resource booklet prior to engaging with the CPD.
In this section, you will find a number of CPD resources that support a dialogical approach to learning and teaching in junior cycle Jewish Studies. The Triple A supports the promotion of active listening in the Jewish Studies classroom while the Women of the Tanakh activity encourages respectful dialogue and informed discussion. The 5WH questioning aid will support students’ engagement with the sources of information embedded in the Women of the Tanakh Activity. The Start-Stop-Continue is a reflection piece that can be used with class groups or at Jewish Studies subject department meetings.
In this section, you will find CPD resources that aim to activate Student Voice in the Jewish Studies classroom. The first resource is a Virtual Student Conference on Jewish Festivals. The What? Now What? So What? Reflection Template will help support students’ learning as they engage with the sources of information embedded in the Virtual Student Conference on Jewish Festivals. The final resource is an overview of the possible learning and reflection activities that could be included as part of this sample Unit of Learning. There are helpful prompts included that activate Student Voice.
In this section, we include CPD resources to support Jewish Studies subject departments when engaging with the collaborative review and development of their practice. It includes the Question Quadrant on the action verb Discuss and the 3-2-1 reflection which can be edited for future Jewish Studies subject department meetings.
