Welcome to Teaching early reading in Africa – with African Storybook


Welcome to the course Teaching early reading in Africa – with African Storybook. Over the next few weeks you will be introduced to active teaching approaches that you can use to teach early reading. You can study on your own or with a group of colleagues, and can practise new approaches in your classroom in a structured and supported way.

This course is for you if you are a teacher, student teacher or school volunteer – or if you just have an interest in how children learn to read. 

We hope that this course will open up possibilities for teaching and give you the confidence to experiment with new approaches. The ideas and tools that it provides will enable you to become more expert in the field of early reading.

We are asking all participants to complete a pre-course survey [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]   to help us understand who is taking part in this course, your motivations and your expectations. Thank you for completing this.
