Teachers Training On Phonics
The proposed project will be implemented in Dera Ismail Khan often abbreviated to D.I.Khan is a city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. It is situated on the west bank of the Indus River, (407 km) away from Islamabad (Capital Territory).
The initiative was originated by the target communities. During filed visits and community meetings, the local community approached IPAD and requested to focus on modern ways of teaching especially to early grades. So based on the priority of the need and demand from the local community, IPAD has taken this initiative and designed one day Workshop for local private and public early grade school teachers.
This workshop will include one day of hands-on instruction in the basic literacy strategies taught in the Reading Horizons methodology. The strategies taught in this workshop are beneficial for all early grade school teachers, but crucial for students that struggle with reading - especially students with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), special needs, and English language learners. After teaching these strategies, early grade school teachers are empowered with strategies that drastically decrease reading, spelling, and pronunciation errors of students
