Opportunity to learn and language instruction in Mozambique

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In Mozambique, the official language policy is that teachers are expected to do spot translation for students whose mother tongue is not Portuguese. Yet, results from a recent school effectiveness study show that teachers rarely implement this policy; in fact, in many cases, teachers in the early grades rarely speak the local languages. This presentation will highlight opportunity to learn findings in Mozambique as well as discuss specific issues (i.e. inability to teach reading; teaching print and cursive concurrently) surrounding the use of mother tongue instruction in Mozambique and its possible impact on students’ ability to learn to read. The presenter will discuss the use of mother tongue in the classroom, how language of instruction impacted time use and hence reading instruction for students in grade 3. The discussion will be placed in the context of the time loss and how improved instructional strategies could improve the cost-effectiveness of resource use in these schools.
