Our literacy clubs focus on harnessing the literacy skills (writing, debating and public speaking, reading, listening, acting, drawing) of students, with a focus on developing creative and critical thinking.
The EduSpots Literacy (EduLit) programme aims to improve literacy proficiency among pupils, improve content-related pedagogical skills, and inspire 21st-century learning skills among volunteers, teachers and pupils in EduSpots project communities and beyond.
We offer training in the following areas, based on community needs and preferences:
- Pedagogical approaches
- Identifying learning needs and using differentiation strategies
- Engaging kids in reading
- Importance of reading on cognitive and behavioural development
- Creating and managing Edulit clubs.
- Strategies for developing phonemic awareness and emergent literacies in children
- Play-based techniques for developing emergent literacies.
- How to select appropriate resources and reading materials for early grade learners.
- How to track reading progress for early grade learners.
EduSpots will support volunteers and teachers in project communities with training, resources and ongoing support to run the literacy programme effectively. These training has been delivered in Abofour, Akumadan, Dulugu, and Kalpohin and should be extended to other communities by end of 2020.

During COVID19, we prepared and shared literacy templates to support learning from home, find the templates under Edulit #Stayathome Posters below.
On this page, we will be sharing resources that can add a spark to your existing literacy project or help you start a vibrant new one!
