Teaching Biblical Hebrew
There have been a few posts recently (as Northerners get ready for the new year - down here the [academic] year starts in after the Christmas holidays in February ;-) about teaching Hebrew.
Tyler at Codex
has a good summary post "Teaching Classical Hebrew
", Joe Cathey has a useful survey of "Classical Hebrew Grammars
" (with - as a reassurance for faint hearted non-Americans - no mention of guns ;-)
So I thought I'd:
- Jump on the wagon with the band while it was rolling past. (Busy preparing this morning's sermon still I have no time for a longer post!)
- Provide some free publicity for a great Hebrew teaching resource. (One I happen, quite by chance, ur-hum, to be associated with ;)
So, here goes... If you have the joy of teaching Hebrew anytime soon do look at our דָּבָר : Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies
collaborative project. It allows teachers to provide their students with multimedia vocabularies for regular learning based on the textbook they are using.
Students get to see something like this "Vocabulary" (they also get a printable flashcard for use on the bus .
Teachers can go to the teachers' site and make up vocabs that are exported to their own server/LMS and if need be contributors (approved teachers) can add words that are currently missing. Though since we have over 500 words already done the need for this should not be huge for an Intro course!
