Training Teachers to Teach Reading


MANILA, Philippines - The partnership between the Department of Education (DepEd) and various organizations to provide public elementary school teachers with updated training on the teaching of reading is being expanded, with the opening of 10 more Computer Access Mentorship Program (CAMP) Sites to reach more teachers this year.

Launched in 2010, the CAMP, a public-private partnership for enhancing education quality, offers online courses as well as Internet and computer access at free of charge to primary grade teachers. It is a collaboration among the DepEd, the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP), and Sa Aklat Sisikat (SAS) Foundation. Through CAMP, public school teachers are trained online to improve their teaching of students to read. The result of past tests showed that poor reading skills among students affect their academic achievements.

The BSP allocates a room in 25 of its council offices nationwide as CAMP sites. These council offices are near elementary schools, making them accessible to teachers. The procurement of computers, training program materials, as well as the conduct of studies and surveys are supported by Asian Development Bank through the Republic of Korea e-Asia and Knowledge Partnership Fund.
