The literary genre of children’s stories and songs is a unique genre in which one group – the adults, writes for another – the children. The Zionist project motivated many writers to create literature and content for children in the awakening Hebrew language. This literature was not only a reflection of the existing social and moral values but also a tool for forming desired values and social norms for the “future generation”. In this course we will explore some of the iconic children’s stories and rhymes from the initial years of the Jewish settlement in Palestine until modern times. We will study the main historical and social trends of Israel’s History and see how these influenced stories and rhymes for children. Throughout the course we will create together a set of critical prisms through which we will read these works. The students will be asked to apply critical reading tools to a work of their choice and to present it in Hebrew. The question “whose child is this” will accompany us along the course. We will see how different factors try to take ownership of the Israeli child and to form and educate it differently. This course is for learners who are beyond the basic conversational level and can communicate in Hebrew in the present and past tense and form their own sentences. In this course, you will get more creative and confident with the language and be able to communicate with more complexity about a range of topics in society and your daily life. *** Early Bird Prices Start at - 1200 NIS - Until 16/06 Regular Price Start at - 1300 NIS - Until 07/07 Late Price Starts at - 1400 NIS - Until first lesson of the course We have made a small change in our pricing structure and are now offering a sliding scale in order to give you the opportunity to donate 100 or 200 shekels when you buy a course.
