What is the Finland Model?
Finland is world-renowned for their successful students, even though they counterintuitively school for shorter days and give less homework. They are efficient with their class time and maintain high academic standards. Their emphasis is on each student gaining a full understanding of the concepts and content, not on test results.
Lessons are 15-45 minutes and are directly followed with a 5-15 minute movement break. Physical activity and play have been confirmed to aid students in processing information and reinforcing learning.
