Shalom and Welcome to the New Year at Talmud Torah!
Kitah Het (8th grade) - class of 2020, is a class of students that are ready to learn together this year. They are a history-wise class and I am looking forward to continuing to hear all they are going to contribute to our learning.
In Kitah Het (8th grade) we will cover the Holocaust by looking at the timeline of pre-World War II, throughout the war, and then the role that Israel played right after the war. We will then jump to talk about Israel today by numbers, humanitarian aid, inventions and more. I am always on the lookout for on-topic guest speakers and events in the community that we can learn from as a class, please share with me if you know of opportunities.
Kitah Het students are in the process of deciding our module subjects that they want to learn about together. Kitah Het offers the opportunity for our 8th graders to learn about topics that they want to learn more about - in past years we have done units on Jews in Sports, Jews in Comedy, the Jewish view of Animal Treatment and many others. I will look forward to hearing what this year's class wants to focus on.
A highlight of the year is our class trip to Washington DC in April. More on this will come in future posts. Looking forward to seeing parents in class on Wednesday evening, September 25th at 7pm for Curriculum Days.
See you at TT!
