MNW Primary student Greta Smith's reflection (read here) on the topic of the Development of Imagination in the first plane will resonate with many teachers.
During the Primary teacher training at MNW, the students read a prepared text on a theory topic before it is presented in class. Trainers lecture on the theory topic, and then the students get into small groups for discussion or a related project. As homework, the students outline the prepared theory text, write a summarizing essay, and a personal reflection. This process gives the students several guided interactions with each theory topic, and generally includes reading, writing, listening, discussing, and reflecting.
