The Story Behind the TALMID Workshop

A Typical
TALMID
Day

The TALMID Workshop grew out of a desire to help Hebrew instructors (and their students) access the advantages enjoyed by our colleagues who teach modern languages.

To do so, a group of pioneering Hebrew instructors needed to receive training in current methods employed by modern lan­guage teachers.  A three-year collaborative project provided that necessary training.  Known as the Cohelet Project, it was made possible through grant assistance from the Wabash Center (2006–2008). 

The years following the Cohelet Project were spent accumulating experience, as members of the project further refined materials and methods in the context of our own courses.  Several pub­lications emerged through this process (see “Resources,” under “Schedule and Syllabus” page). 

In recent years an increasing number of colleagues have asked for help in transitioning to teach Hebrew with a Second Language Acquisition approach.  This led to a preliminary workshop in 2009, and now to the TALMID Workshop.

The current TALMID Workshop connects closely to the modern language pedagogy movement by providing focused training in two of the five world-readiness goal areas (the “5 C’s”), as set forth by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages and also adopted by the American Classics League:  “communication” and “cultures.”  For an executive summary of the ACTFL goals, click here.  For a version of the same five goals adapted to classical languages, click here.
