The Chain of Tradition Series Volume II: Jewish ethics, philosophy and mysticism
A Teacher’s Book for Jewish ethics, philosophy and mysticism
First published 1968
This book attempts to provide you not with lessons, but with the embryos of lessons. For each chapter of text you will find an introduction, which is in most cases a paraphrased precis of the material, and two or more suggestions for handling the material with your class. Some of these suggestions could consume an entire class period, some deserve only brief treatment; no hard and fast rules have been followed here, just as you cannot follow any hard and fast rules in using this text with your class. How you treat the material depends not only on it, but on you, on your class, and even on your mood the day you teach it. No teacher’s guide can tell you what to emphasise, which discussions to prolong, which to cut short, what to omit; that must come out of your estimate of what you and the class can most benefit from. There is nothing obligatory here, nothing that must be learned; but there is everything to learn.
