Key objectives in our recent work in Mozambique was to demonstrate that children can quickly and easily:
We think it would take a half day (tops) to ‘train’ teachers in this simple system and, as long as the school principal is supportive, take a couple of hours per term to keep the system rolling along.
Teachers would need to check in with the children and offer encouragement and the school management find opportunities for the children who have prepared songs and drams and messages to share these and involve other children (ideally all the children). I always knew this was easy and possible but it was good to be able to ‘show’ it working so well.
