Do We Know an Orientation when We See It? Continuing the Conversation about the Teaching of Rabbinic Literature
Levisohn, Jon A.
Journal of Jewish Education, v76 n3 p272-283 2010
This article extends the conversation begun by Levisohn in "A Menu of Orientations to the Teaching of Rabbinic Literature" (volume 76, issue 1 of this Journal), and continued by a number of respondents (volume 76, issue 2). After discussing several insights offered by respondents, the article takes up the question of whether the menu is accurate. Are there other orientations not on the menu? Are there orientations that are on the menu that should not be? Finally, the article considers a proposal to simplify the menu radically, but argues that the proposed simplification will miss significant, observable differences in pedagogic practice--and thus would not serve the purpose of the menu. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
