Who is a Jew? Tackling stereotypes

Who is a Jew? Tackling stereotypes

This lesson is about recognising Judaism as a world religion and recognising stereotypes. I did this lesson with several classes who predominantly thought that Jew's were exclusively people with top hats and curls. It can serve as an introduction to diaspora communities also.

30 Images of Judaism PowerPoint Presentation + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For These Cards

Are you teaching Judaism to your students? I have created a pack of 30 images which relate to Judaism which will make an excellent opening lesson or help you create and interesting, eye catching display about this topic. This pack contains a 31 Teaching Activity Teacher Guide using these photo flash cards. These activities are quick and fun to do and will improve both your students' memory and vocabulary skills. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of photos. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Judasism. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Jewish actvities. The students can then discuss what they think why one is important in Judasism. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
