Sierra Leone: Through the Eyes of a Literacy Development Project

Friday, October 06, 2017,
  • Location: Wyatt Center • 1930 South Dr • Nashville, TN 37212
  • Room: 050-3

What are living and schooling like in the world’s 14th poorest country, where classrooms have no electricity, almost no books, and 60-80 children; where there are two seasons — rainy and dry; where challenges are great but the people amazingly resilient and innovative?

Join Dr. Kathy Ganske as she shares experiences from her recent six weeks in Sierra Leone, working on an international literacy project to train some 5000 primary-grade teachers. What might we learn to inform our own practices?
