The Municipal Education Directorate of the La-Dadekotopon Municipal Assembly, has organised a three-day capacity building workshop for basic school teachers in the municipality.
It aimed at helping to enhance the teaching skills of the teachers by broadening their perspectives of the teaching profession.
In addition, the workshop, which attracted about 100 participants, would help to equip the teachers with the capacity to support in improving the reading culture among pupils in the municipality.
Mrs. Bernice Addai, Municipal Director of Education, opening the workshop, said it was part of the education directorate’s efforts at empowering teachers to deliver.
She said her outfit remained concerned about the poor reading culture among children in the municipality, indicating that the workshop was to partly address that challenge.
To achieve success in improving the situation, she noted that the teachers needed the requisite skills to help the children to learn and practise reading.
Topics treated at the workshop included, ‘Preparation for reading and basic skills’, ‘Teaching reading, using the phonic methods’ and ‘Importance of reading’.
