English Language reaching journal launched

A teachers’ journal to help enhance the teaching of the English Language in Ghana and sub-Saharan Africa, has been launched at the British Council, in Kumasi.

The quarterly journal, which was developed and published by Midstream Literary Agency (MLA), would serve as a useful resource for capacity building – to improve the professional competencies of English teachers, to significantly boost their performance in the classroom.

Mr. Evans Owusu Amankwaa, Chief Executive Officer of the Agency, indicated that the lack of effective avenues for professional development of teachers was a major contributory factor to the decline in the quality of education.
This was what the journal, sponsored by the Tony Elumenu Foundation, sought to tackle, he indicated.

Mr. Amankwaa said the introduction of the journal was to help English Language teachers to best teaching practices and standards.

Mr. Akwasi Osei Bonsu, acting Director of Human Resource at the Forestry Commission, said continued professional training and development opportunities were vital for building a competent team – to achieve high level of performance.

He encouraged teachers to go the extra mile to upgrade their professional skills.
