"The children are doing pretty well on their Hebrew schooling. Eden has completed all of her books and I'm doing revision with her. Joshua is almost finished his little magazines but Daniel is a little on the slower side and I'm needing to work a little closer with him to get the work finished. Having said that, I'm thrilled with their level of understanding of the set work, they've thoroughly enjoyed it and so have I! Many thanks for a great curriculum! Blessings, Melissa"

This program utilizes information available on the web, plus much of our own creation,in a curriculum organized by us. It assumes parent-child engagement and cooperation in the learning process, as they work through the material.-The latest direction in Jewish education is geared toward family involvement.
-The secular university is moving much more in the direction of independent learning as well as learning via the web. This article from the Chicago Tribune recently helps explain:"one theme is a shift from a passive model of absorbing a lecturer's words to a more active one where lecturers guide and measure, but students learn the material more independently."In a traditional course the faculty are doing all the work and the students are watching," said Carol Twigg, president and CEO of the National Center for Academic Transformation, which is working with hundreds of universities to improve giant courses. "In a redesigned course, students are doing the work and faculty are stepping in as needed."
Our programs is based on students learning under parent supervision, outside of the traditional classroom, with our support to assist. -We also take advantage of the revolution in communication-the resources on the web, as well as the prolific Jewish educational resources our Rabbi has created on the web. We are also cognizant of the overwhelming challenges families today face in juggling all the family needs. This program allows the student and parents to work at their timetable and largely avoids the need to shlep.
-At the same time, there appears to be less family interactive activities today, and especially centered around Jewish living. Many parents did not grow up Jewishly or had very little Jewish educations, so this will achieve multiple benefits. This will prove beneficial on both counts.-Most importantly, evidence seems clear that standard religious schools in their current format, achieve little, and may even be counter productive. This view enjoys wide support among Jewish educators. We believe children will learn and retain more, and enjoy it more since it means more parent time and, interaction, uses a "cool" medium, and can be done at the families discretion time-wise, obviating many conflicts.
