THATCamp Jewish Studies - Pedagogy Session Notes

David’s problem - how to flip a classroom? Students don’t seem to be internalizing, closely reading the textbook

Course information: about 10-25 students, intro-level undergraduate course, students have no background, first course for these students in Jewish Studies and in many cases Religious Studies - content is Bible through Middle Ages

Wants to teach them how to read “real” texts, not textbooks … give background information, then let them read e.g., Marc Cohen
