Bryan Rocine textbook

Below are my teaching notes from a first year Hebrew course I taught in 2014 using Learning Biblical Hebrew: A New Approach Using Discourse Analysis by Bryan M. Rocine [ISBN 1-57312-324-2].

You can order the textbook directly from the publisher at Smyth & Helwys Books, or get it in digital format from Logos Bible Software.

I also made a FULL ANSWER KEY to all the exercises (chapters 1-50). Contact me with evidence that you've purchased the textbook and I'll be happy to send them to you.
(And just to be clear, I have no financial relationship with Rocine, Smyth & Helwys, or Logos.)

Key Slides

Note: most of these slides won't make sense until you 'take the course' :), but if you already know some Hebrew they should give you an idea of Rocine's approach.

Misc Slides

These are a few miscellaneous slides I pulled out of the course at some point because I found them useful elsewhere.

My Rocine Teaching Slides

These are my teaching slides organized according to Rocine's chapters. In the 2014 first year course, I got up to Rocine chapter 38 and supplemented from my Ross lectures for some bits that I needed from the final chapters of Rocine that I didn't get to. I later taught Rocine through completely and divided it up into 3 semesters as follows: 1-18, 19-38, and 39-50. There are also 8 sets of readings at the end of the book which are designed to be done alongside the first 50 chapters as outlined in the "Reading" headings below.

Paradigms & Worksheets

These are a few of the key paradigms and worksheets to get some practice.
