Training effective Afghan Teachers

May 2009 Update

Teachers participating in a recent AIL “Teaching Literacy” seminar had the following to say about their experiences:

One teacher said, “There have been so many changes in myself, I can’t believe it. I now understand that the method I was using to teach my class was wrong. I didn’t teach my students regularly because I didn’t know the best teaching methods. Now I have learned how to stand in front of the class, and how to teach my students confidently. I have learned that having a lesson plan and having it all together can improve the level of my students.”

Another participant said, “Although I have been teaching literacy courses for about three years, my teaching was just reading and having my students repeat after me. I didn’t know how to have the students actively participate, I just lectured in front of the class. Now I understand that I must have lesson plans, how to use the student centered methods and how to teach different subjects to my students. I hope this will help me teach the students well and help society.”
