Course Details

Description

What do friends and notebooks have to do with each other? What about knees and swimming pools? By the end of this course the students will know the answers to these questions! All Hebrew words are built on 3 letter roots (shorashim). These shorashim are the building blocks to Hebrew words. Over the course of 4 weeks, students will be introduced to up to 20 different roots and the words that they make up. Even without being able to fully read Hebrew, the students will be able to figure out the main context of Hebrew passages and prayers by identifying the shoresh (3 letter root).

Requirements
This class will be a combination of discussion on screen and writing or creating in journal. Students will need to be in a place they can write. Ability to screen share.
Supply List

A pad of paper or small journal pen or pencil highlighter. Ideally but not necessary students should have a device that allows them to annotate on the screen. (This is difficult on phones and does not work on all chromebooks)
