Teachers upgrade skills in teaching techniques
A four-day training workshop for selected teachers on the acquisition of language and literacy skills ended at separate centres at Ahomahomasu and Bosuso on Friday.
The Workshop was organized by the Ghana Education Service (GES), with financial support from Education Quality for All (EQUALL) Project, an affiliate of the USAID and was to equip the teacher's with new techniques in the teaching and reading of Ghanaian and English languages in Kindergarten and lower Primary Schools.
The Fanteakwa District Director of Education, Mr Kwadwo Osei-Owusu, at the closing ceremony, urged teachers to put in adequate instructional strategies to make the pupils attain the basic skills in reading and writing.
He said adequate preparation of the pupils at the basic levels would help them acquire enough skills which would help bridge the performance gap between public and private schools.
Mr Osei-Owusu urged teachers to motivate the pupils to participate actively in lessons and maintain high moral standards.
He advised the teachers to use the new skills acquired at the workshop for the benefit of the pupils and urged them to set performance targets and work extra hard to achieve it.
