iTALAM and TaL AM Training Institutes

TaL AM 1, 2 , 3, 4 & 5 Training Institutes in parallel tracks are offered in different locations twice during the year:

The Part 1 or Summer Institute presents theory and methodology underlying the program, and introduces the units studied during the first half of the school year.

The Part 2 (mid-year or Winter) Institute is devoted to the units studied during the second half of the school year, while continuing to expand on the pedagogical approach of TaL AM. We are proud to offer iTALAM for grades 2 in both locations and 3 (pilot) in New Jersey, and the Torah and Parasha Tracks for all grades.

Webinars

TaL AM is gradually transitioning to an online mode of training, in consideration of the costs that schools incur in sending teachers to participate in the TaL AM Institutes, as well as new the technological possibilities. As was the case in the last two school years, also in the 2013-2014 school year we will continue to conduct training in a hybrid mode: Face to Face (F2F) and Webinars.

A series of Webinars will be replacing some of the Winter Institutes.

Please keep an eye for our announcements by email and on our websites (here and on our webstore) for information on planned webinars. In some cases participation will incur a fee.
