Innovations seek to increase child literacy in developing countries
On October 5 we celebrate World Teachers’ Day to honor the critical contribution teachers make to education and development. This year we highlight pioneering teachers working hand-in-hand with All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development (ACR GCD) grantees to pilot innovations seeking to make breakthrough progress in child literacy.
Early grade teachers in Zambia face a myriad of challenges in teaching reading. Large class sizes, learners with limited previous exposure to books, and lack of tools and training make their jobs difficult. It is in this context that GraphoGame™ is being implemented—to equip teachers to meet these challenges and open the world of reading to their students.
