Additional Information on Brazil:
In Brazil, we're partnered with private schools (several different ones) and have classrooms within the school. Our school works more as an after-school program and the average schedule has teachers teach two 2-hour classes from about 2pm-6pm (i.e. 2-4 & 4-6). Teachers report at 9:00am and mornings are designated for: planning, collaborating (with other teachers or teaching assistant (TA), who acts as more of a team-teacher), grading, meetings, etc.; teachers have an hour lunch, then prepare for students. All our curriculum is online and project-based. Lessons should generally consist of a language developing activity, then content based activities and engagement, and some work time where students are either doing collaborative work or teachers can work with students on individual progress and understanding.
