  • Description
  • Support Materials
  • Grades: 4-6        Though its usage may well be broader, this material was specifically designed to be used in fourth to sixth grade as a personality centered introduction to Jewish history. We know that many schools struggle with a problem of (a) knowing that research suggests that sequential history cannot really be studied until seventh or eighth grade, but (b) also knowing that if history is not taught in the fourth to the sixth-grade slot, many students will never have an opportunity to study it.

    Therefore, what we have created is a series of “biographies” that tell individual stories in the context of background, that can be mastered during this period. Each of these units is designed to:

    • Tell the story of a significant, influential, Jew
    •  Set that story in a specific historical period
    • Expose students to the use of primary source material/texts
    • Use the conflicts in our subject’s life for a source of values
    • Provide tools for a review of key concepts

    The individual biographies can be considered “quilting squares” and can be assembled in any fashion that the teacher or curriculum designer desires. They can be clustered within a historical period, gathered by theme, or sequenced o demonstrate a historical flow.

    The quote from Ken Kantor (based on the introduction to the book, the Jewish in America Sports) suggests that we can learn good values and get role models from Jewish athletes. You can ask students to make a list. The first, a list of their sports heroes and what they can learn about life (and not just sports) from each one. Students who don’t follow sports can be offered an alternative choice.
