Training: Weeks #3-6

I’m a bit behind on blogging so bear with me!

Training is going well and am learning a lot.  We have lectures, KSL (Kenya Sign Language) lessons, and discussions on a daily basis.

Last week was week #4 of training which was my favorite week of training so far.  We  split up into small groups (2-3 people) and traveled all over Kenya to shadow a current PCV for a week.  More on that in another post.

This coming week is week #5 which means that we’re almost halfway through our training!

Here are some of the lecture topics for weeks #5 and 6 in addition to week #3 topics.

-Options for Deaf Students Post Primary School

-Language Acquisition Timeline

-First Aid and Emergencies

-Review of Schemes of Work and Lesson Planning

-Kenyan History
