Objective to make classroom environment more pleasant for Year One, Two students: Organisers.
In a bid to boost teaching literacy effectively for Year One and Two students, a week-long workshop for 14 clusters of teachers was organised in the Northern Division.
Labasa cluster one mentor Olimiva Toga, at Ro Qomate House in Labasa yesterday, said the workshop organised by the Ministry of Education and Access to Quality Education Programme (AQEP) was rolled out nationwide.
“The objective of this workshop is to understand how children learn to read, the importance of reading fluency, to practice activities that help children learn to read and find ways to make reading an enjoyable activity,” Mrs Toga said.
“The teachers looked at the stages of development that all children progress through and the importance of active learning.”
She said the teachers were doing a great job, but they wanted to improve some of the ways to help them do activities more effectively.
“Now that the teachers have completed one week of workshop, I am sure they will be able to make their classroom environment more pleasant,” Mrs Toga said.
Teacher, Unaisi Finau of Kia District School on Kia Island commended the programme.
“Through this workshop, I have learnt what are some activities that I carry out to help my students enjoying reading and writing,” she said.
“There are always some students who struggle am read and write. Now I feel thankful to return to my school on the island equipped with knowledge and skills to assist these students.”
