Abstract:

The Core Education Skills for Liberian Youth (CESLY) is a USAID-funded two-year project that supports Liberia’s Ministry of Education to enhance of success of accelerated learning and create a new non formal education system for Liberian youth. It has significantly invested in the development of reading skills among youth and teachers through the implementation of a coherent instructional approach to reading, teacher training, mentoring and coaching, reading-focused radio programs for teachers, the promotion of a literate environment and a culture of reading and the promotion and development of Liberian literature. This presentation looks at the beliefs teachers in the program hold about reading development and reading instruction two years after the introduction of the support program. It will conclude by discussing how the lessons learned may help to inform the design of more effective investments in teacher development as well as classroom and community reading interventions.
