Educators from China Visit Rea View!
A delegation of four educators from Nanjing, China visited Rea View on Wednesday, April 25 to learn more about the American educational system. The group is from the Nanjing Normal University Affiliated School, which is an official sister school for Marvin Ridge High School. Mrs. Cook had the opportunity to visit this school in China in 2010 with the China Bridge program sponsored by the College Board. It was a wonderful opportunity to host staff members from the school in Nanjing and showcase educational practices used in our school to foster active student learning. The group visited many classrooms and saw hands-on math instruction, collaborative student groups creating murals to represent key concepts, partner reading, and a variety of readers' theater performances. The third graders culminated their visit by singing a song from their International Festival with Chinese and English lyrics. The Chinese educators were very impressed with the students' creativity, the variety of work products in the classrooms and hallways, and the happiness that our students displayed as well!
