Teach the Teachers Scoop
Great Shape! Inc.’s Teach the Teachers Project provides resources, volunteers, and training for Jamaican educators. This is an award-winning program, praised by the Jamaican Ministry of Education. Volunteers will usually support one or two tracks of the project (listed below).
- Computer Education focuses on beginners to advanced (including hardware and troubleshooting).
- Language Arts models methods to enhance reading and writing techniques with an emphasis on comprehension, skill building, word recognition, and written expression.
- Behavior Management demonstrates the tools to enhance motivation and rewards; provides methods to create a joyfully-controlled classroom as well as tips to manage staff.
The children of Jamaica are the ultimate beneficiaries! Their teachers have long requested training from Great Shape! Inc. This is a wonderful opportunity to collaborate together (imagine a room full of educators from around the world!), gain access to inspiration, resources, and proven techniques.
