Teachers’ Committee Meeting
Sunday, April 18, 3 p.m. PDT (6 p.m. EDT, 11:00 p.m. in the U.K.).
Rebbecca Margolis developed an intermediate course that teaches language and history simultaneously by exposing the students to authentic texts from early to more modern sources. We will discuss this and other ways we can embed cultural history into language teaching. This event is for Yiddish educators only and is conducted in Yiddish.
