Textbooks and Learning Materials Program: Zambia. Final Report
US Agency for International Development
The Mississippi Consortium for International Development's (MCID's) intervention involved the development, publication and distribution of an Integrated Foundations of Learning Kit, focused on numeracy. This intervention was aligned with Zambia's priorities and strategies and matched the requirements of the Textbooks and Learning Materials Program (TLMP) grant. Materials in the Kit built upon and enhanced existing materials and added new, complementary materials aligned to the new syllabus. The implementation strategy for the intervention reflected an integrated approach to teaching and learning with emphasis on Zambia-based content. While focusing on mathematics and numeracy, the intervention also was designed to enhance the Zambian Ministry of Education's (MoE's) efforts to integrate cross-cutting life skills materials--HIV/AIDS and Gender--into the curriculum. The strategy incorporated quality control measures and a capacity-building approach to program development, including the involvement of indigenous writers/authors, illustrators and publishers in all phases of implementation as well as teacher training. The materials developed included: (1) For Fourth Grade: Learners' Books; Teachers' Books for fourth grade textbook; electronic version of books on CD; and instructional posters; and (2) For Fifth Grade: Learners' Books; Teachers' Books for fifth grade textbook; electronic version of books on CD; and instructional posters. Attachments include: (1) Chart of TLMs [textbooks and learning materials]; (2) Teacher Training Summary Chart; (3) Copy Right Information; (4) Inventory Report and Request for Disposal; (5) Cost share Report; (6) Distribution Information; (7) Report Submission Dates; (8) Other Matters; and (9) Final Evaluation Report. (Contains 4 tables and 4 figures.)
