Professional Development and Lesson Study in Chile
In my one week in Chile, there was a host of professional development activities for teachers from public, semi-private and private schools.
Presentation on Earlybird Kindergarten at British Royal School Santiago
Presentation on My Pals Are Here! Maths at Andree English School Santiago
Teachers who attended the sessions at Thomas Jefferson School, British Royal School (Conception), The Hebrew Institute and Mackay School (Vina del Mar) will find this presentation relevant.
Presentation on Pensar sin Limites at various schools can be found in another blog entry.
I conducted an open lesson for Primary 2 (Multiplication) at Dagoberto Godoy School in Santiago for all the teachers from the eight primary schools in this semi-private school cluster.
I also conducted an open lesson for Primary 2 (Addition and Subtraction) at Escuela Republica de Guatemala. Primary 1 and 2 teachers from 54 schools attended the session watching the lesson from a hotel and we had a discussion afterwards.
