I was in Serbia and Romania in workshops with national co-ordinator Ana Blagotinšek. I m ade contacts with several primary teachers, but teacher s in our school did not take the opportunit y for the international cooperation. How to impress them to cooperate, to exchange experiences ... Primary teachers have difficulty with English, English teacher with sciences ....
As I mentioned before , I put a lot of my spare time on work ing with primary teachers. If we want high-quality research in science teaching with Fibonacci boxes it is necessary to have two teachers in the classroom. But I have to find another option, because it is difficult to combine teaching and working in project .
I f you have any suggestions or examples of good practice .
We change a methods, last year all pupils ha d to do one experiment and we discussed the topic for 2 lessons , this year pupil s circulate among the experiments in the classroom and we spend four lessons for topic . I expect some feedback from teachers and each will decided witch metod suits . The response surprised me, the majority chose the first (last year's method of teaching), I believe that is so because pupils are more easy controlled. I would still like to see that pupil s work individually, but we must do this year's method of work. I do not know whether I should be satisfied that teachers are finally beg i n ing to wor k , or should, after two years , plan to do more , but I do not want to put too much pressure on teachers. So do you have any suggestions for future?
