Integrating Shavuot Prep with Year-End Reflections

Shavuot, often aligned with the ending of the school year, poses a unique opportunity for Jewish Studies teachers to frame their end-of-year reflections and review through a ‘Shavuot lens’. Integrating students’ reflection back on their year of learning and growth with the study of Shavuot will give added meaning to the students’ thinking, while also bringing some themes of the Jewish holiday into the daily experienced lives of your students. These suggestions are meant to be springboards from which class discussions, activities, assignments and materials can be developed.
