ACHIEVEMENTS FOR THE PERIOD UNDER REVIEW:

 

2.1 1st Phase of Teacher Training Workshop

Learning Squared in partnership with Teaching Training Together (TTT-Liberia), launched a one-year professional learning certificate training program for school leaders and teachers in Liberia.  The first of three seminars commenced on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, and end on Friday, September,16,2022in Kakata, Margibi County, Liberia.  The program brought together fifteen teachers and three school leaders from across four schools (ROSODAN School System, St. Effa Elementary School, Minor Community School, and Agape International school in upper and lower Margibi County, Liberia. 

The main objectives of this Seminar were to emphasize a transformational style of leadership that would lead to greater collaboration, shared vision, and continuous learning among school leaders and teachers.  Becoming an effective teacher begins with an understanding that a teacher’s role is to move learners from their actual (current) ability to their potential ability through a process called the gradual release of responsibility.  Margaret Gallagher and David Pearson developed this theory. Key points discussed included the three-step method in the gradual release of responsibility: 1. Direct instruction (I Do) 2. Guided Practice (We do) 3. Independent Practice (You do). Further, discussed during the training were: How to plan for the school day using the three-step method?  What makes a good teacher? How do we support teachers in improving instruction? How can we improve the quality of learning?

The training also brought together other participants, including district and county education authorities for Margibi County. On his part, the Country Manager of Learning Squared welcomed the participants to the training and highlighted the significance of the training workshop, as schools around the country will soon open. He further stressed the need for more capacity development for teachers, and the workshop is just one of the means to support education in Liberia and the quality of learning.

2.2  3rd Annual Back-To-School Book Ride Campaign 2022

Learning Squared Liberia launched the 3rd edition of its  Back-to-School Book Ride in Bomi County, Liberia. The campaign was implemented in four counties( Montserrado, Bomi, Margibi, and Bong). This program is an annual event that seeks to create access to a secure educational environment for children. Children will have books, pens, and learning materials they need to begin the school year. The program goal this year was to reach 5,000 students in communities and schools.

The intervention primarily aims to provide students on the edge of survival and families struggling to make ends meet with learning materials. These families do not have enough to buy notebooks, pens, pencils, and learning materials. The program is sponsored by partners of Learning Squared in the USA and Liberia. The total fund raised was 2,500.00 USD.

 Six schools in four counties benefited from the exercise. D. W. Institute Elementary School, Kingdom Builder Elementary, St.Eaffa School, Agape Elementary and Junior High school, and Minor Community School. Speaking on behalf of the schools. The Principal of Minor Community School, Mr.Moses Wolalou lauded the partnership of Learning Squared as 

a pathway to sustaining and improving learning outcomes. Two thousand five hundred copies of supplies and materials were distributed to schools for this year's program.

2.4  Recommendation and Conclusion

Thanks and appreciation to our supporters, donors, GlobalGiving, Local communities, and school for the level of commitment shown toward the successful implementation of the project.
