Spotlight on Israeli teachers

TEMI Israel delivered cohorts number 4 and 5 and collected interesting feedbacks from the participating teachers. Most teachers implemented TEMI mysteries in their class and shared positive impressions related to the experience. Some teachers, who are more conservative in their way of teaching, were supported from colleagues who tested TEMI in the classroom and felt more confident about some of the innovations, especially storytelling or showmanship. Some of the more experienced TEMI teachers pointed out the need of ongoing support to keep improving the TEMI experience with their students. Three groups of trained teachers presented TEMI activities at the Israeli Chemistry teachers’ congress on December, a proof they acquired enough knowledge to act as active elements in the cascading process to reach more teachers.
