Dominican Republic

In the Dominican Republic, CTI staff conducted workshops on teaching beginning reading using local materials, and teaching for comprehension. The team prepared a three-volume set of staff development guidebooks which were translated into Spanish: one on emergent literacy, one on beginning reading, and one on reading for meaning. The workshops were delivered in Spanish by CTI's Spanish-speaking trainers. They were hosted by the Pontificia Universaidad Catolica Madre y Maestra, and supported by USAID through the CETT (Centers of Excellence in Teacher Training) Project.
