Teachers Reporting Success!

Teachers Reviewing New Materials
Teachers Reviewing New Materials

Hi everyone! AIL has been hard at work training teachers in dozens of different workshops and seminars, all tailored to what the teachers need most in their classrooms. With AIL Learning Centers growing at a healthy pace, the demand for effective teachers is also growing…this is something that your support is helping to make a reality. Last year, AIL trained nearly 1,700 teachers, 1,300 of whom were female. Teachers participated in 118 workshops and seminars with topics ranging from teaching techniques and lesson planning to ethics and problem solving. Your donations have made it possible for AIL’s teachers to take part in a wide variety of these trainings to become well-rounded instructors, capable of being flexible to fill many roles while also being able to provide high-quality instruction to their students.

Freeba, a teacher at one of our centers, took part in a short workshop covering how to create effective tests. She said:

I had problems with giving tests to my students. I didn't know how to make questions so that they weren’t boring or too difficult for the children. After this seminar, I now know how to prepare questions for exams.”

Another teacher, Jamila, took part in a teaching methodology seminar. After participating in the seminar, she reported back to us and said:

“My 2nd grade students were restless and I had difficulty teaching them. I continued teaching but they weren’t learning. In the seminar, they taught us subjects on teaching methods. It was exactly what I was looking for. I learned many teaching methods. For instance, I learned about group work and presentation techniques.

I went to my class and taught my lessons again using the new methods I learned. I noticed that all my students, including those who had difficulties before, learned it well. I feel a change now. I can use these methods in my own way of teaching after this. I wish all teachers could participate in these types of seminars.”

We would like to thank you so much for your support of the Train Effective Afghan Teachers program. Without supporters like you, we couldn’t have accomplished what we have or what we plan to do in the future. Thank you!!
