Stuggart, Germany is a beautiful city. We met for an introduction and discussion of the German school system and educational model this morning at Haus der Wirtshaft - head office of Baden-Wurttemberg. We visited a primary school and I got to observe a 2nd grade classroom. There were many similarities and a lot of differences between our classroom and their classroom. By looking at the pictures, what do you notice that is the same and different? What questions do you have about their school? I will post my list tomorrow of what I observed.
I am excited to take my students on this journey with me. I am eager to bring back the German history and culture and connect this with our curriculum. My intent is to learn more about the advancements with Germany's renewable energy and help my students and Willow Springs Elementary imagine different futures and the role that they can play in the world.
