Teaching English In Africa from the Author: Anderson, Jason. Teaching English in Africa is a practical guide written for primary and secondary school teachers working all over the continent. This book relates the practice of English language teaching directly to the African context. As well as covering the underlying theory of how children learn languages and how teachers can best facilitate this learning, it also provides practical resources and ideas for activities and techniques that have proved successful in English classrooms in Africa, both at primary and secondary level. It is intended to be a practical guide, so references and citations are kept to a minimum and concepts are presented using examples that are likely to be familiar to most teachers working in Africa. If there is a bias in this book, it is towards the needs of teachers working in low-resource, isolated contexts in Africa, as these teachers are so often neglected by literature on teaching methodology.

Teaching Africa from the Author: George J. Sefa Dei. One is always struck by the brilliant work of George Sefa Dei but nothing so far has demonstrated his pedagogical leadership as much as the current project. With a sense of purpose so pure and so thoroughly intellectual, Dei shows why he must be credited with continuing the motivation and action for justice in education. He has produced in this powerful volume, Teaching Africa, the same type of close reasoning that has given him credibility in the anti-racist struggle in education. Sustaining the case for the democratization of education and the revising of the pedagogical method to include Indigenous knowledge are the twin pillars of his style. A key component of this new science of pedagogy is the crusade against any form of hegemonic education where one group of people assumes that they are the masters of everyone else. Whether this happens in South Africa, Canada, United States, India, Iraq, Brazil, or China, Dei’s insights suggest that this hegemony of education in pluralistic and multi-ethnic societies is a false construction. We live pre-eminently in a world of co-cultures, not cultures and sub-cultures, and once we understand this difference, we will have a better approach to education and equity in the human condition.

Teaching And Researching Language In African Classrooms from the Author: Casmir M. Rubagumya. This book offers a comparative perspective on language education policy and practice in Africa. Contributors to the volume draw from their teaching and research experiences in Botswana, Burundi, Tanzania, Zaire and Zimbabwe. Among the issues discussed are: language policies in Africa and how they affect classroom practice; the importance of taking into account the social, economic and political contexts that underpin language policy in education when discussing language problems in African education; the need to develop an interdisciplinary approach to both teaching and research; and the need for a critical perspective on teaching and researching language in Africa.

Multigrade Teaching In Sub Saharan Africa from the Author: Aidan G Mulkeen. In Africa, with the expansion of coverage of primary education in recent decades, many of the remaining out-of-school children are in hard to reach areas, with low population density and poor transport. Providing access to education is challenging in such contexts, as the population in any village is often too small to support a conventional primary school. One of the answers is the use of multigrade teaching, where one teacher works with students of two or more grades. This paper examines the practice of multigrade teaching in three African countries, Uganda, Senegal, and The Gambia. Although these three cases had very different approaches to multigrade, their experiences suggest that multigrade teaching is a promising and cost-effective option, but that successful implementation requires sustained support from policymakers, adequate training of teachers, and careful explanation of the approach to parents and the communities.

Inclusive Teaching In South Africa from the Author: Tsediso Michael Makoelle. Inclusive education presupposes an all-inclusive approach where all learners are taught in regular classrooms, regardless of background, disability or social context. While there has been much debate, indications are that inclusive education has been gaining momentum. The book is divided into six coherent sections that address the how of inclusive education both inside and outside of the classroom.
