Welcome to the small but sweet G-dcast store, where you can pick up "real world" versions of our cartoons and Teachers' Guides. Want to learn more about G-dcast? Check out the website, or watch this short promotional video featuring Producer Sarah Lefton.
This 6-part course guide is based on episodes produced by 12 independent artists for Studio G-dcast. Each part of the course guide is designed to introduce students, ages 15 and older, to a story from the Talmud and encourages students to reflect on the relationship between the Talmud story and the artists’ retelling of that story in film. All six stories from the Talmud--and the episodes based upon them-- explore a single theme, “tradition versus innovation.” The curriculum for each episode includes: background information for educators; bibliography for educators; a story summary; an original translation of the Talmud passage treated in the episode and explanatory notes; warm-up questions, which focus on helping students understand the narratives; discussion questions designed to engage students in the deeper meanings and themes of the Talmud passages; the film scripts; further discussion questions designed to foster student discussion about the relationships between the Talmud text and the films, as well as the choices the artists’ made in their representation of the Talmud stories; and artistic exercises geared towards encouraging students to think about how they would go about making their own films based on the Talmud passages.
