Goals And Objectives
Tools for Torah will assist teachers in setting goals for their lessons.
1) Guided by the school’s curriculum in conjunction with the
themes outlined by Tools for Torah, a teacher will identify
essential concepts and skills to be taught.
2) Provided screening tools will help the teacher pinpoint the
class' and individual students’ skill deficits such as in Hebrew
language acquisition and provide additional reinforcement using Tools
for Torah materials and programs.
Customize And Download
Teachers will access an online resource of customizable teaching
materials and ideas for study units, helping teachers present educational material to students
of varying skills and interest. Teachers first establish a class’s
learning profile. Then they are guided to recommended activities
available on the site for download in print, audio, video, SmartBoard
and computer games and applications.
By Teachers, For Teachers
The Tools for Torah Creative Teacher Team will develop these
materials and activities. Participating schools and teachers
will access these materials online. In addition, teachers
will be able to create online lesson plans that can be
customized by “dragging and dropping” desired materials and
activities into their plans. All lesson plans will be archived, indexed and accessible to other teachers and schools.
In order to continually improve the quality of the existing
units, all participating teachers will provide detailed feedback
after teaching the unit.
The incorporation of a Learning Management System
will help keep track of both the teacher's chosen curricula
goals and students’ progress. Based on assessment results,
teachers will generate individualized tutorials for the students.
Students will login to access their individualized
saved profiles, and the program will monitor and provide
reinforcement tools to improve their knowledge and
