Katy's Education Workshop

On Thursday 2nd November 2017 Education East Africa’s partner organization, Support to Primary Education Rwanda, hosted its first ever workshop for government and school officials. The workshop was opened by The Honourable Minister for Education. In his speech he praised our work and the use of our books, the New Original English Course (NOEC).

 

It was the first time an education workshop actually brought the classroom to the capital’s education officials who make the policies and write the curriculum. We brought 20 Primary 1 pupils (7 year olds) from Gasabo primary school, and 20 Primary 1 pupils from Gikomero primary school with their respective teachers Claude and Emima. They gave two mini-lessons as part of the workshop which demonstrated the pupils’ understanding of English including varied and difficult sentence structures. This illustrated what they have learned through NOEC and left no doubt with those in attendance as to the effectiveness of our teaching and learning materials.

 

In this 30-minute video, Katy emphasizes the importance of mastering skills in the mother tongue before a second language is taught, and how the teachers in post now can be supported by instructions and explanations in their mother tongue when they are teaching English as a foreign language. Her presentation demonstrates how the charity’s tried and tested NOEC books are THE tool not only to improve learning by the pupils but also in the very important tasks of training and supporting primary teachers.
