July 1st: "What a great day at our Annual Conference! Teachers explored and discussed innovation teaching methods, students worked on learning and writing each others' stories, and much more!"
July 1st: "About a dozen of our students with guidance from two teachers put together a wonderful short play on a classroom lesson in less than 24 hours that they performed for us! The level of creativity is amazing!"
July 2nd: "More workshops on innovative teaching today for the teachers and maths, poetry, and oral history for the students. And lots of awards and hugs and love. We are excited for next year already!"
July 5th: "Karen and I [David del Mar] got to do an oral-history workshop today for about 100 students at Dahin-Sheli, teaming up with Mr. Nantoma and Madam Hani. Then it was off to ECG to present exercise books to our letter writers. Great fun, and the dedication of Ghana teachers is inspiring!"
July 6th: "Thursday we had a wonderful time visiting and dancing with the staff at Kamina Barracks.Mr. Nantogma again hosted us at Savelegu Senior High School, and his wife provided a delicious lunch. Then Karen taught some U.S. dance at ECG."
July 7th: "Friday we returned to Dahin-Sheli School as a dozen students presented what they had learned from elders about how they, the elders, had learned traditions and the challenges in the modern day to passing them down. Well done! We hope they will pursue the oral histories much further in the coming school year."
Onwards to more fun!! (Seems like that fun is resonating based on the photo below!)
