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
-Integrate HIV/AIDS and Food Security in the Classroom
-Asking Questions and Behavior Management
-Hidden Deaf Children. Learning to Sign and Student Expectations
-Translating English Text to KSL
-History of KSL
-Maintaing Strong Emotions
-Residual Schools and Deaf Units
That’s a lot to cover in such a short amount of time!
