|The Pedagogical Gymnasium of
Nizhni Novgorod is a very unique school. It might well serve as a
model for schools throughout Russia and the world. Without exception,
all the students and teachers I met during my day-long visit to the Pedagogical
Gymnasium seemed genuinely happy to be at the school.
The teachers and students share the experience of learning through exploration, asking challenging questions and seeking new answers. An example of the innovative learning-by-doing philosophy of the school was offered by students in an upperclass economics course. They founded a company, "Global." They bought T-shirts, printed the Russian double-headed eagle on the front and exported the shirts for sale in the US. The project has helped to finance a recent trip by 10 of them to visit the gymnasium's sister school in Danville, IN, USA.
