Before and After: Building 'Magic' Classrooms

Amongst teachers, learners and parents, the work of the NMI has become known as the 'Magic Classroom Collective.' Before working with the NMI, classrooms carry the heavy burden of long term neglect. Teachers have little ability to systematically support conceptual progression of children. There is no reading breakthrough up to Grade 3.

After working with the NMI, classrooms are busy with the energy of children learning and teachers teaching. The classrooms are conducive to learning and teaching without fear. Children love books. The classrooms are 'magic' because they systematically produce the magical explosive learning moments -- that taken together are the basis for the joy of learning.
