LESSONS in the SCHOOLS

teach courses in the schools, with programs for children and teachers.
I have taught course at the Convitto Nazionale di Arezzo and the Istituto Comprensivo di Terranuova Bracciolini. In particular I developed a specific program to help teachers change the model of writing taught to elementary school children. During the year 2009/2010 a program in 14 lessons at the Elementary School in Terranuova Bracciolini had been very successful, demonstrating the positive effects of the Italic model on the child curriculum.
