What is Torahverse?

Torahverse is a sustainable schoolhouse for mixed age, Jewish children of varied learning and religious levels who form a student-drive learning community to create real-world doing, character development, and discovering how they best learn towards mastery of chosen areas. At Torahverse rely on proven systems from Acton Academy to hand over the control of the learning process to the students. The adults serve as facilitators of opportunity, game-making to provide motivation and resources to children, and trained observers of environmental cues and how to most effectively intervene when appropriate.
