Check out Nonfiction Monday at Simply Science.
I'm currently on tour with our cohort in the Destination Denmark! study abroad program. I had an interesting conversation with a young Danish man who was seated next to me on the plane from New York to Copenhagen. He just finished a two year stint teaching high school science in Pennsylvania and was returning home. We found so many similarities in our thoughts about students and the state of education in general. It was refreshing to share with a teacher from another country.
After landing and enjoying a delicious Danish breakfast , it was time to explore Copenhagen. We strolled down Stroget (a large car-free pedestrian area) on our way to Nyhavn which is a long canal bordered by colorful houses.
One of the striking qualities of Danish culture is architecture. You will find so many interesting buildings in Copenhagen. Case in point: Vor Frelsers Kirke (pictured at the top of the post). The spire, completed in 1752, runs around the exterior and is accessible to visitors. A 295 ft view awaits the hardy hikers who dare to go to the top.
Tomorrow's agenda includes a session on the Oresund Bridge and a visit to a local school. If time permits, I hope to post again tomorrow. I am fortunate to be with this terrific group of educators.
