This past Sunday our class reviewed some of the connections between the story of Purim and other Jewish stories we have read. We moved on to our writing reflections on our ideas and how the story of Purim also connects to events that we have seen in our lives.
We then dedicated the rest of the course to working on our presentations. Each student is working with a partner or small group on a certain topic that they are preparing to present to the class. The presentations are in the form of newspaper articles that the students craft with their partner(s) with pictures/drawings and facts about the event or person. Please ask your student which subject they are preparing for, just to do a bit more research and maybe help them find a picture to use. This review will help them better understand the event or person they are learning about and take notes to add to those they have already written. They are expected to find and record the 'Who, What, Where, How and When' of the person or event to present. Looking forward to this Sunday, we will continue with the presentations in class and be learning from one another!
