A History Alphabet, by Arusha Teachers

During this summer’s DukeEngage program, we have devoted much of our time to training Arusha teachers in the LTP methodology. We have led follow-up or ‘reunion’ workshops for those teachers we first met and trained in 2007 and 2008. And we’ve trained about 100 new teachers during workshops at primary and secondary schools as well as Mandaka Teachers’ College. We used the last of our supply of Polaroid film at many of these workshops. We used the “alphabet” assignment as a way to introduce LTP after showing teachers examples from 2008 Arusha LTP projects and teaching them about the concepts of reading photographs and writing from photographs. Here’s a selection of images teachers made during the workshops. The assignment required that teachers work in groups to create a visual alphabet about the theme of history.
