The project aims to partner with government schools to promote child-centred teaching-learning and improve achievement levels in grades I to III.
The project works towards improving teaching-learning pedagogy as well as classroom structure of grades I to III at nine partner schools in six VDCs in northwest Kavre District. The nine schools will form a cluster that builds networks and initiates good practices like self-assessing achievements, sharing success stories, learning from each other and planning.
The primary stakeholders are children studying in the nine partner schools. Teachers and principals will participate in the school assessment and self-assessment, planning workshops and teacher trainings. RBF, as the project implementer, will assume the role of a coordinator as well. Parents, Resource Persons from Kavre District Education Office, social workers, political leaders, and education journalists comprise of the other significant contributors.
The project is implemented in two key ways. The first step consisted of school assessment, assessment of students, and planning with Principals. Secondly, teacher-preparation, supply of materials, and monitoring took place. With exposure to school-management essentials and support from RBF, the Principals sat together to develop an annual action plans. Teachers of grades I to II were prepared in a five-month-long training session in child-centred learning and effective teaching. They are learning skills related to effective teaching methods and techniques as well as classroom scheduling and organization, evaluation of students’ progress, parental involvement, child club formation, and establishing a library.
