Herzliah High School’s technology team has prepared for download a sample of students’ PowerPoint presentations, based on their research projects in Tanakh class, Ivrit b’Ivrit, where they studied I and II Kings. While teaching the books of Kings, I have repeatedly noticed that students tend to perceive the period of kingship as personified only by the first three kings: Saul, David and Solomon. They are much less aware of the period following the division of the kingdom and, consequently, know little about the numerous kings who ruled over Judea and Israel. These PowerPoint presentations aim to introduce the students to these rulers and can fully or partially be incorporated into teachers’ lessons.
