A Chimney On The Canadian Prairies: Yiddish-Language Libraries In Western Canada, 1900 To The Present, Faith Jones Dec 2006

A Chimney On The Canadian Prairies: Yiddish-Language Libraries In Western Canada, 1900 To The Present, Faith Jones

Judaica Librarianship

Yiddish book culture did and does exist in Western Canada, even outside the vibrant Jewish culture of Winnipeg, in communities whose geographic isolation from the Yiddish-speaking centers may seem extreme. Two libraries may serve as examples of the variety of manifestations of Yiddish reading in these localities: the library of the farm community of Edenbridge, Saskatchewan, which may be said to be emblematic of cultural organization in these rural colonies, which existed from before World War I until the 1960s; and the Kirman Library at the Vancouver Peretz Centre for Secular Jewish Culture, itself an unusual example of a Yiddish ...


The First Deinard Collection Of The Library Of Congress, Myron M. Weinstein Dec 2006

The First Deinard Collection Of The Library Of Congress, Myron M. Weinstein

Judaica Librarianship

The extensive Hebraica holdings of the Library of Congress are based on a core collection of nearly 10,000 books and pamphlets that was acquired circa 1912. The “nation’s library” purchased that collection—which included 19 incunabula—from the prolific Hebrew author and bibliographer Ephraim Deinard, with financial support from the businessman and philanthropist Jacob Schiff. It was the first of three Deinard collections acquired by the Library of Congress. This article outlines the negotiations and vividly describes the personalities who made that signal acquisition possible.

A Comparison Of Two Teaching Methodologies In A Middle School Algebra Classroom, Kristina L. Tucky

All Regis University Theses

This study was an attempt to determine if a change in teaching methodology would have a positive effect on the outcome, as measured by a chapter test, of an algebra class. The research involved a pretest-posttest control group design of two sections of an eighth grade algebra class. The control group received the standard instructional practice, known as the "direct method", while the treatment group received the same "direct method" and additional "constructive" methodology in the form of manipulatives and group reading of the subject matter. No statistical difference was found between the means of the two classes on the ...
