Info about the University Book Training and Implementation

Our vision is for our teachers to enjoy teaching English and for our students’ English to improve. The first year English Department teachers at a University in the Kyrgyz Republic are lacking sufficient English teaching materials and a strong, unified, and effective curriculum. Attaining new books and materials, conducting trainings to use the materials, and encouraging full teacher participation to develop a new curriculum, will create organized and prepared teachers and breathe life into the English curriculum.

The University teachers are requesting teacher and students books from Oxford University Press for the first and second year English department. The books will include various level fluency and grammar books with audio CDs and four CD players. Once the materials are attained, the Peace Corps Volunteer, senior teacher, and a representative from Oxford University Press, will collaborate to develop a week long book training for the first and second year English Department teachers. The sessions will be set up as 4MAT lessons to ensure teachers are given the opportunity to practice and display what they have learned throughout the sessions. After the training, each teacher will be allotted two months to develop five original lesson plans to parallel the innovative material structure. At the end of August, the PCV and senior teacher will assemble to critique lesson plans, give feedback, and organize new department curriculum. Materials and lesson plans will start being utilized in September 2009.

Throughout the year, students will be surveyed on the effectiveness of curriculum, which will parallel the new materials. Students will also be pre and post tested to ensure the effectiveness of the new curriculum. There is also a mandatory open classroom and teacher observation for all teachers in the department. These are all opportunities for staff to gage effectiveness of the materials, new curriculum, and teacher-developed lesson plans.
