The next morning, I neaten up the plans from the previous night into a coherent logical sequence and set about creating learning outcomes and an initial lesson plan for the teacher to appraise and tell me that he felt confident to follow. Planning for yourself is one thing, and occasionally my plans have been hasty scribbles on a (clean) Kleenex, but planning for someone else need to be at least slightly co-operative. In the past, NEH has faced the problem that teachers do not follow the plan because they do not understand the laid out instructions.
NEH will provide laptops with Breaking News English articles and audios loaded for offline use. We will also create a three month comprehensive syllabus and lesson plans for our R.E.C teacher to use in class. After 1 month of teaching, we will return to R.E.C for a progress update and make any tweaks in the scheduling or topics that have been planned. Also, we will observe lessons taught by our guinea-pig teacher and update the curriculum or the individual lesson plans based on the feedback from the teacher and his students. If the teaching is successful, the other teachers will return to their villages and implement a similar, paired down version of the syllabus that they have just been students with.
