Nascent Solutions is currently implementing a five-year project funded under USDA’s McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program (MGD) in Cameroon. The project is designed to improve the literacy of school-age children through improved literacy instruction, student attentiveness, and student attendance. Secondly, the project intends to increase the use of good health and dietary practices. The project runs from October 2018 to September 2023.
STS will design training materials and facilitate a Training of Trainers (TOT) as part of this MGD project in Cameroon. The training materials will focus on instructional strategies for teaching reading in French. STS will create two primary technical deliverables – a teacher’s handbook and a facilitator’s guide. The teacher’s handbook will provide summary background information on key reading skills, instructional strategies for how to teach each of these skills, and examples of activities teachers can do with their students in the classroom when teaching these skills. The facilitator’s guide will include training techniques and guidelines for literacy coaches who will train the teachers on how to use the handbook. STS will facilitate a five-day Training of Trainers in Cameroon with the literacy coaches who will train teachers.
