Teacher Training Continues

For the period of June through August, 2011, another 160 Afghan Teachers attended the Afghan Institute of Learning’s Ten Day Technique Seminar.  During this seminar, they ` learn about many different topics such as the good characteristics of a teacher, lesson planning, class arrangements, principles of teaching, psychology, grading and problem solving.  The master teacher trainers use question and answer, role playing, group work, and individual work in order to interact with the teachers and keep them interested in the topics and learning different teaching principles to take back to their class rooms.  When they leave this seminar, they are far better prepared to interact with their students and to get the students involved in the class.  For years, the teachers in Afghanistan have used the rote memorization method in the classroom.  AIL is changing this so that the students will learn critical thinking skills.

Another AIL Project, “Transform Lives of 70,000 Afghan Adolescent Girls” has been chosen to be part of the Girl Effect Challenge, which runs from October 15 through November 15, 2011.  Approximately 60 projects have been included in this challenge.  The top six projects with the highest number of unique donations will become part of the Girl Effect Fund for one year and each is expected to earn an additional $25,000.  Please check out our project #8791, and thank you for your generous support of our programs!
