TEACHER TRAINING

The teacher training is the core of THE BOOK IN SCHOOL - it ensures a multiplier effect with sustainability.  A well-trained teacher can change the lives of many young learners in a positive way -for a lifetime. The training is

 communicative and hands-on. With accreditation by the National Teaching Council of Ghana.

THE BOOK IN SCHOOL invests directly in people.

INTERDISCIPLINARY LEARNING

Understanding of text occurs when readers build connections between the text and their previously acquired knowledge. In the project, connections are made between the biblical text and other subjects e.g. social studies, citizenship education, religious education, geography or history.

"We want to activate the innate resources in young learners. If pupils know that they are being heard, they blossom and start achieving. It's essential to release creativity in schools. A creative spirit wants to give form and meaning to life. This leads to innovations and loving, productive communities can be built. I enjoy working with biblical text: it has depth, gives orientation and is the source of explosive creativity."
