India's National Education Policy (NEP) has recently underscored the essential importance of incorporating a child's mother tongue throughout the early years of schooling. There is therefore a great need for planners and practitioners alike to become familiar with the core concepts of Mother-Tongue Based MLE, and approach to foundational literacy and numeracy which has proven successful in many countries across the world.
During this 10-day, face-to-face course, participants will be introduced to foundational concepts in MLE. They will then survey a number of practical techniques for developing language-sensitive learning materials. Finally, there will be a brief exposure to teaching methods which leverage learner’s home language in the classroom.
This course will be useful for educators from government or private institutions working in linguistically diverse communities. While there is much to learn about MLE, we believe there is value to building relationships with workers from our LEAD Community of Practice network in India, and these relationships may provide opportunities for coaching and mentorships in the future.
