A special course for high school teachers in the Gaza Strip and the northern Sinai-has been completed at the Negev University, in Beersheba. The course was designed to present modern methods of teaching science which emphasizes the training of students to think creatively.

It was the first time that male and female teachers from the Gaza Strip and northern Sinai had worked side by side. There was some difficulty at the beginning, but the teachers adjusted and when a woman teacher scored the highest grade the attitude of her male colleagues changed. At the end of the course two of the teachers, who met during the session, announced they would he married.
