“Pleased to see so many ways to develop and encourage thinking skills – comparisons, considerations, stretching, taking into the personal – relating to students’ own experience. Connecting to what may or may not be known – e.g. How do you think the background was created? Then of course the project ideas using Cuban artistic ideas as springboards for the UK students to create. Using the art forms to instigate personal literature writing. And to all about issues. These are powerful methods which gives meaning to the learning.” Feedback on the Education pack from Ruth, retired teacher
