TOPIC MEET THE EXPERT: RESOURCES AND TECHNIQUES TO SUPPORT TEACHERS IN TEACHING EARLY GRADE READING.
The Teacher Community of Practice [ www.tcop.rw ] was designed for teachers and other education stakeholders. to be connected, to learn from each other and sharing their best practices.
All these months from the beginning of the year, we have had so many topics of discussion about how we have helped teachers to be better teachers and implement the new CBC, etc. Also, discussed about EGR (Early Grade Reading) and the introduction of EGR e-course a diploma in Kinyarwanda, several mentors responded and liked the discussion and some are doing the course now. EGR is a very important aspect in our education since it gives the skills of reading to the children between 6- 8 years of age. Last Friday we discussed about promotion of community collaboration on to provide Early Grade Reading (EGR) support to teachers in our schools. As we all aware that a student who can’t read can’t learn, we therefore need to make sure we give skills to our teachers to assist learners to learn how to read at early ages by providing them with necessary resources to support them.
