The Netherlands | 30 September and 1.2 October |
I will spend a day in a school, Snijdersschool in Rijswijk, to observe mathematic lessons across grade levels. At the end of the day, I will get to share with the teachers the fundamentals of mathematics teaching.
I will also be present at several events organized by Bazaalt who published a Dutch version based on My Pals Are Here! Among others, I will be speaking with a group of trainers that provide professional development for Dutch teachers as well as teachers who have been using Rekenwonders, the Dutch version of a Singapore textbook. On one of the afternoons, I will conduct a masterclass on teaching basic skills as well as problem solving using bar models.
