At the elementary school, Os Barneskule, I was hosted by Ms. Karianne, Ms. Sigrun , and Mr. Per.
I shared a PowerPoint about Rhode Island, Martin Luther King, junior, and his legacy today.
LESSONS LEARNED from Os Barneskule
*teachers stay with the same group of students for many years
*teachers have multiple preps
*students do not wear their shoes in the classroom
*Norwegian schools face many of the same challenges that schools in the USA 🇺🇸 face: discipline struggles, fair wages, adequate planning/prep time.

At the vocational training school, Os Vidaregåande Skule, my friend, Tone, graciously let me teach her social science class. I introduced the students to Rhode Island along with an abbreviated information session on American political parties.
Followed by a school debate in preparation for the national election on September 11, 2017.
KEY LESSON FOR THE STUDENTS: Vote!
