Hebrew Language has always been a hallmark of an RPRY education and the school continues to look for ways to improve. This year at RPRY, they are piloting the use of Ulpan Or’s iHebrew™ curriculum in our seventh grade. This program is innovative, interactive and research-based and was developed using 21st century technology from Israel. iHebrew™ includes video clips, audio recordings, built-in structured exercises, virtual flashcards, Israeli songs and much more. By adopting it, we hope to create a sense of confidence for each student in his/her ability to converse in Hebrew. (New Paragraph) iHebrew™ is an experiential, conversational program that builds a child’s skills for two-way communication in Hebrew through the use of blended learning: combining online learning with more traditional classroom instruction. The curriculum is designed to assist the teacher in differentiating instruction and allows for a “flipped classroom” in which students watch instructional videos at home and then do “homework” in the classroom with the teacher’s supervision. It has been rewarding to see the students’ Hebrew acquisition enriched in real world situations such as ordering food in a restaurant, going shopping in the shuk and collaborating to make their own videos in Ivrit.
