Today was a slow day with activities taking longer than expected but the teachers are grasping the ideas.
We did one activity relating to science exemplifying the strength of knowledge involved in group work. Eric also did an example lesson of a math class by having the teachers figure out a linear equation. Instead of simply giving an equation, it is important that students create it themselves so that they can really understand how it works, what it means and why it is relevant to them.
We went over the basics of a good lesson plan and started a social studies lesson that will be important for tomorrow’s activity “preparing a lesson plan”.
