Kimuka Village Primary School Pilot Project Maasailand, Kenya
I have designed a unique program for teachers and students in under-resourced schools. The CMT model and materials introduces teachers to the most effective methods for teaching reading and writing. It raises the existing bar for literacy learning and emphasizes teaching for thinking and self-directed learning. CMT piloted this program with over 150 primary school children from the Kimuka Village and Olmaroroi Schools in Maasailand, Kenya. After the 6-week inservice phase of the project was completed, support continued via emails sent from a cyber cafe.
