After that, the colloquium started, with teachers’ presentations and comments made by Lilian. In both periods, teachers demonstrated proud, emotion and gratefulness for the works performed and results achieved with their classes from the TFC courses.
“If you check out my students’ notebook in the beginning of the year and after TIM Faz Ciência, the difference is clear and evident. In the beginning of the year it is very traditional, the text is there and the activity is related to that text. After I started working with TIM Faz Ciência, my horizon got wider and I found out that it was possible to pass my contents on another way”, described the teacher Eliane Abel de Oliveira, of CEI Journalist Claudio Abramo, of Curitiba. “They are doing very well on the exams and it their learning is improving a lot.”
In addition to Eliane, the teachers Patrícia Andrade, of EC 10 de Taguatinga, of Brasília; Marília Ariela, of EM Quintino Cunha, of Fortaleza; and more 10 teachers of Curitiba participated in the colloquium: Lezi Maria de Almeida, of EM Heráclito Fontoura Sobral Pinto; Silvana Aparecida da Silva and Marily Orsolon, of EM Irati; Manuelle Simeão, of CEI Romário Martins; Sonia Domingues, of EM Paulo Freire; Clarice Lunardon and Josiane Kuracz, of EM Ayrton Senna da Silva; Viviane Hansen, of EM Campo Mourão; Ezequiel Neves da Silva, of EM Santa Ana Mestra; and Elizabeth Minetto, of CEI Journalist Claudio Abramo and CMAE Maria Cândida Fankin Abrão.
