Building on your pupils’ strengths is an important strategy to guide their learning process and to foster a positive atmosphere in class. Teachers gain advice on how to talk to pupils about strengths and explore the best ways to praise your pupils’ efforts and achievements. During this class, participants engage in hands-on activities to identify their pupil’s (and their own) strengths.
Participants will also learn about ‘Finnish Schools on the Move’, a national action program aiming to establish a physical-activity culture in Finnish schools. In this course, participants are introduced to the basics of the program and engage in some hands-on activities. They learn how to include physical activity in the school curriculum and how to increase their pupils’ participation.
