On November 25, 2023, the Oasis Book Project held the first Reading Teachers’ Convention at the Madrasa ECD Center, Mengo. The theme of the convention was “Streamlining Reading Instruction in the Ugandan Classroom”, and we were thrilled to receive about 135 participants, the majority of whom were Nursery teachers.
Our objectives were the following:
- To equip teachers with relevant knowledge & resources that they can use for effective reading instruction
- To initiate a networking space where reading teachers can share best practices, identify gaps, and benchmark solutions
- To introduce affordable, high-quality, and culturally relevant teaching aids for guided reading instruction
