TEACHER SUPPORT PROGRAM

We want to support teachers in implementing jeepneed lessons. We also want to build them up to be their own content creators and community trainers. This is why we developed the teacher support program, here, we don’t transfer knowledge to teachers, we help them customize our offerings to their classroom, give them tools they can adopt to improve learning outcomes, and allow teachers to identify and develop solutions to their classroom experiences.

EACH CLASS IS COMPOSED OF THE FOLLOWING 4 COMPONENTS

1. PREPARATION

Each class includes training preparation where we ask teachers where they are in their curriculum, allowing us to customize specific topics in their

2. CONTENT AND PRACTICE

During the training, teachers identify modules they will be implementing and run through the modules with each other.

3. ASSIGNMENTS

Before the training ends, teachers identify what specific part of the program they will implement in the next two weeks and sign a pact with trainers.

4. FOLLOW UP

Text and voice follow up gathers data on the number of teachers that have implemented lessons, and addresses any problems they might have encountered

THE PROGRAM: 4 CLASSES, TAKEN 2-4 WEEKS APART

CLASS 1: Introduction to Hands on science

Where do you start? Here. This class has everything a teacher needs to start putting a little bit more of the learning in the hands of their students

CLASS 2: Classroom management intensive

Oh no! the classroom is too loud, the students are too excited and the class tends to end in a mess. This class helps teachers implement core techniques to maximize the time in a hands on science class.

CLASS 3: English in the Science classroom (OPTIONAL)

Do you find yourself transitioning to Tagalog or mother tongue to fully explain a science concept? Here teachers learn how best to transition to a full english science class depending on where they class is.

CLASS 4: Creating your own kits

So, you’ve gone through and implemented at least 10 jeepneed lessons and now you have ideas of your own. This class guides you through the process of idea generation and science kit creation to help you add on to and improve your current laboratory.
