FTI Mesivta students are being challenged to improve their fluency in reading Gemara. Spearheaded by Rabbi Davidowitz, Rabbi Kramer and Rabbi Harris developed a Yeshiva-wide program to improve the talmidim’s reading ability.
All FTI rebbeim are incorporating specific educational practices into their classrooms. Talmidim are encouraged to read with a chavrusa, in front of the class, and in groups. Rebbeim are including reading-focused questions into worksheets and quizzes, and students often record themselves reading Gemara as a homework assignment.
To top it off, thanks to a generous sponsor, talmidim will be rewarded with $5 when they read and translate an entire amud of Gemara to a Rebbe in 5 minutes or less. Thank you to our first generous sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous for sponsoring the first 72 amudim of this program. B”H, many students have already taken advantage of this amazing program, and in just the second week of Yeshiva we are almost out of funding for the first 72 amudim.
The nachas stories already coming out of the program are truly amazing. Boys who never thought they could do something like this, have done it, and now have more confidence and satisfaction in thier learning than ever. Please contact Rabbi Kramer or the FTI office if you would like to have a share in this amazing life-changing program.
