Whole brain teaching is a method of instruction that combines fun gestures and rhymes with short chunks of information that are immediately re-teachable. I have worked to integrate WBT into Hebrew studies in Chumash, Dikduk and Mishna with tangible results that can be replicated in any class. This method has infused the classroom environment with energy, zest and memorable moments!
