Samait Shala

About The Product/Innovation

Samait Shala’s solution tries to provide a Balanced Literacy Program that equips teachers with a detailed and comprehensive English literacy curriculum. The curriculum covers six basic components of literacy; speaking and listening, reading fluency, sight words, reading comprehension, grammar, and writing. Teachers and students follow this curriculum for 2.5 hours 4 days a week. Students who need to remediate at their own pace and time use it 3 times a week for 30 minutes each to build their basic reading abilities.

To implement the Balanced Literacy Approach and the school curriculum teachers receive continuous pedagogical training, observational support and feedback aimed at helping teacher to reach every student in the classroom. They also have a bilingual phonetic program for parents, which provides them with 6 to 8 week of program support where every fortnight, parents are taught ways in which they can help their children to read English at home.
