Notes to the teacher
This is the place to make suggestions to the teacher of different ways they may choose to facilitate this limmud
Or particular grade levels or sensitivities to take into account
Or anything else you think is important for the teacher to know
This is the place to raise some questions that make sure the teacher tests the limmud on themselves or others
Could be a general question like - which part of the limmud resonated most for you? Which question was the hardest for you to answer?
Or questions anticipating students’ responses- What do you think students will say for X or Y? To what extent are you open to being surprised?
