A few days late starting with this blogging project, but I may find myself catching up at some point. Or I’ll blog a couple of times a week. We shall see–I’m undecided.
But I’m starting with tonight, as the topic of Learning and Teaching fits in perfectly with tonight’s Post Confirmation class, in which the 11th and 12th graders looked at a few modern tellings of Pesach, and worked on some of their own interpretations. Using images to understand the story in new ways and then writing Six Word Haggadahs. Then, they had a choice of activities–to Tweet the Haggadah, make a video, or write a song telling the story. The results were wonderful, and I’ll be posting much of their work later.
For now, their versions of a 6 Word Haggadah
Once slaves, then plagues, now freedom
God sent plagues and freed Jews
The Jews were freed from slavery
Liberation of Jews; not without sacrifice
Pharaoh! Moses! Part sea. Jews free.
Once slaves, now free, no bread 😦
We fought. We won. Let’s eat.
Moses cried, “Let my people go!”
Slaves they were and exodus began
“What about bread?” “Now it’s matzah.”
