The Hebrew Language Needs of Future Conservative Rabbis: A Needs Analysis
Krohn, Nitza
Journal of Jewish Education, v75 n3 p258-289 2009
In the field of second/foreign language teaching, needs analysis is widely recognized as an essential step in curriculum design and program evaluation. A needs-based approach to Hebrew language education has been advocated by a number of researchers and educators. In a study that employed interviews and surveys, the Hebrew language learning needs of Conservative rabbinical students were investigated. Differences of opinions concerning the desired focus of Hebrew language instruction, its content, and skill emphasis were found both within and across respondent groups. Some curricular and pedagogical implications of the findings as well as the limitations of the study are discussed. (Contains 10 tables and 12 footnotes.)
