As always, Gay & I came away with renewed enthusiasm after the conference. It's great to gather new ideas and to hear of peoples success with Discovery Time. We get very excited when teachers tell us that "Yes, this is what our kids need."
We have had many enquiries about our book so here are a few more details.
This is the blurb on the back cover:
Read the book and you'll know:
- Why Discovery Time is important for todays kids
- How to plan, structure and organise the session
- How to use Discovery Time to strengthen key competencies
- How to use the reflection time at the end to maximise learning
There are also lots of ideas for activities, plus examples of completed planning sheets to get you started.
Don't forget to check out the CD Rom that goes with the book. This contains all the colour pictures that we couldn't put into the book, recipes and quotes from the research (A4 posters for displays).
email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can put a copy in the post and send an invoice $48 NZ (including postage & GST).
