As many of you embark upon a new year of Melton teaching, I want to take this opportunity to remind you about the Student Handbooks. Also, as you know, roadmaps are an integral part of Melton teaching. These are tools you produce to outline for your learners where you are starting and where you hope to go during your lesson.

We do not create roadmaps, you do. And this is because they reflect your own decisions as to how you plan to teach your lesson. That said, Melton has always engendered a culture of sharing among our faculty and directors, and so we turn to you at this time and ask you to please submit your roadmaps as you produce them.

In particular, we would love some roadmaps for our more recent courses:

  • Ethics of Jewish Living (2018 pilot edition) 
  • From Sinai to Seinfeld: Jews and Their Jokes
  • Jewish Mysticism: Tracing the History of Kabbalah
  • The Star and the Crescent: The Long Relationship of Judaism and Islam
  • Vayikra (A Call to Holiness)

Please email your roadmaps to Rabbi Morey Schwartz, International Director of Education and Innovation: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 We thank you in advance for your time and generosity! If you are still unclear about roadmaps, their content, their value and purpose, feel free to drop me an email and I will be happy to review with you their great value and import. You must create roadmaps for your teaching!
