Conceptual Understanding In History - How Do We Develop It?, Brian Doig, K Piper, Suzanne Mellor, Geoff Masters

Prof Geoff Masters AO

This is a reprint of the findings for history of a 1992 survey carried out by the Australian Council for Educational Research, published in 1994. It looked at 2900 students in Victorian schools at Years 5 and 9, and assessed their geographical, historical, cultural and political understandings based on a set of tasks. The reports of the findings for history teachers are dramatically important.

Library Of Congress Subject Headings In Jewish Studies: Recent Changes (1994–1995), Joseph Galron-Goldschliiger

Judaica Librarianship

The following subject headings of interest to Judaica and Hebraica librarians were culled from Library of Congress Weekly Lists (1994) nos. 6-52 (Feb. 9, 1994–December 28, 1994), and (1995) nos. 1–36 (January 4, 1995-September 6, 1995).

The list is also an update of my 4th edition of Library of Congress Subject Headings in Jewish Studies (New York: Association of Jewish Libraries, 1993).


Midrash In Jewish Children's Literature, Diamond Goldin Barbara Dec 1995

Midrash In Jewish Children's Literature, Diamond Goldin Barbara

Judaica Librarianship

The term midrash has a specific meaning and a broader one. Specifically, midrash refers to the post Talmudic body of writings (post-500 C.E.) such as Midrash Rabbah and Pirke de-Rabi Eliezer. In broader terms, midrash has come to mean a Jewish story that explains, clarifies, or elaborates on an event or passage in the Torah.

There are many stories in midrasnhic sources that are appropriate and valuable to retell for children. A retelling of the story "Solomon and the Demon King," for instance, can captivate a fifth grader today who plays computer games and rides a skateboard, just as ...

The Story Of The Sarajevo Haggada, Kemal Bakaršić Dec 1995

The Story Of The Sarajevo Haggada, Kemal Bakaršić

Judaica Librarianship

The story of the rescue of Sarajevo's Haggada codex during the Second World War was put together first by checking archives and other reliable sources, and thereafter contrasting the findings with the legend itself. It appears that a fictional story has filled a gap in the historical record of the postwar years; the legend has protected persons involved in the salvation of the Haggada.

Some Problems Of Ladino/Judezmo Romanization, Zachary M. Baker Dec 1995

Some Problems Of Ladino/Judezmo Romanization, Zachary M. Baker

Judaica Librarianship

While ALA/LC standards have been developed for the Romanization of Hebrew and Yiddish for bibliographic purposes, the lack of such a standard for the Romanization of Ladino/Judezmo impedes access to materials in that language. The distinctiveness of Ladino/Judezmo argues that it be treated on its own terms, and not as merely derivative of its principal components, Spanish and Hebrew. This article establishes the rationale for an ALA/LC standard for the Romanization of Ladino/Judezmo and suggests sources that could serve as its basis.

Ambiguities In The Romanization Of Yiddish, Bella Hass Weinberg Dec 1995

Ambiguities In The Romanization Of Yiddish, Bella Hass Weinberg

Judaica Librarianship

Romanization of Yiddish is one of the most complex activities in Hebraica cataloging, especially for publications that do not use Standard Yiddish Orthography. The Library of Congress has adopted the VIVO table for vowels, but uses its own Hebrew table for consonants. LC's publication Hebraica Cataloging provides little guidance on Yiddish Romanization, and MARC records contain many errors and inconsistencies in the application of the table. VIVO's linguistic reference works, notably Uriel Weinreich's Modern English-Yiddish, Yiddish-English Dictionary and the translation of Max Weinreich's History of the Yiddish Language, often contradict each other in the Romanization of ...

Judaica Librarianship

Most of the changes come under classes BM (Judaism), BS (Bible), DS (History of Asia) and PJ (Oriental philology and literature).

Ajl Sydney Taylor Award Presentations, 1994, Claudia Z. Fechter Dec 1995

Ajl Sydney Taylor Award Presentations, 1994, Claudia Z. Fechter

Judaica Librarianship

The Sydney Taylor Awards were established in 1968 to honor the memory of one of the favorite and finest of all children's literature providers. Sydney Taylor, herself, set the standard of teaching about Jewish values and a Jewish way of life through stories. In her memory, her husband, Ralph Taylor, of blessed memory, and now her daughter, Jo Marshall, have provided a handsome prize for the outstanding writers and illustrators of new Jewish juvenile literature. No children's collection should be without these wonderful works.
