Peace Corps Stateside Teacher Training for Volunteers in Liberia. Volume II: Training Program for Teacher Trainers (Group A). Final Report.
PSI Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
The goal of the teacher/university education component of the Peace Corps Liberia Education Training Program is to provide trainees with experiential and theoretical learnings that would be useful to them as inservice teacher trainers or university educators for the Ministry of Education, Republic of Liberia. To achieve this goal, training focuses on: (1) acquainting and familiarizing trainees with Liberia-specific information about roles, functions, and organizational structures; (2) instruction in generic teacher training, providing a cursory treatment of several teaching-learning models and approaches to the supervision of inservice and preservice teachers; (3) instruction in cognitive learning theory, emphasizing that cognitive styles are "culture bound" and that the recognition of differences in learning styles is essential to the adaptation and development of curriculum materials; and (4) instruction in workshop planning, implementation, and evaluation. Multiple handouts provided to the volunteers are present in this report. Included are: "The Revised National Curriculum for Monrovia,""Liberia in Language Arts (grades 4-6)," proceedings from mathematics and science workshops on how certain teachers tackled difficult subjects and students, a training syllabus for the workshop for mathematics and science teachers, a section on volunteer-made materials, and a section on using indigenous materials in the classroom.
