Pereyma Math at Borresen Drammen, norway
Team Ontario members are once again welcomed to Borresen. We can't wait to get into the classrooms!
Even when Norwegian is spoken, we can still grasp the flow of the lesson... We see learning goals, think pair share and good teacher-student interactions.
We are interviewed for the school's Norwegian student blog. We have as many questions for our interviewers as they have for us! We learn and share much as we interact with the students. This is a highlight of our day.
We hope that tag team teaching will happen closer to home as well.
Making Pereyma proud...
Is there any better space for collaboration?
We experience Norwegian learning with movement as we hike back down and continue to share and grow.
The Learning Centre is inviting, warm and spacious with many places to collaborate.
The chocolates are awesome....
...but we can't wait to hear from their Director regarding the district plan.
We are more alike than we are different.
Teacher learning is key. We agree that when teachers work together to improve their practice, great things can happen. Lives can be changed.
We are presented with a thoughtful, research-rooted plan. We are impressed to see this plan reflected in student voice, teacher goal setting and practice, and school leadership.
At length, we discuss lesson study. We discover that this is the same as our impactful Collaborative Inquiry for Learning Mathematics.
We invite the Drammen senior leadership team to come to Pereyma so we can further explore lesson studies and learn more from one another.
Back at the school, we meet with Borresen teacher candidates.
