Tenda Teachers Program

The Tenda Teachers Professional Development program promotes teaching and learning strategies that encourage students to think critically and creatively.

Project Zawadi employs six Teacher Training Coordinators who work closely with government officials to deliver the Professional Development Program to teachers at 46 primary schools in the Chamriho Division.

The program is centered around modules that focus on specific strategies. The modules, all in Swahili, include video clips of Tanzanian teachers demonstrating best teaching practices in local classrooms, instruction on the new strategies, opportunities for teacher discussions and reflection with peers, quizzes, and testimonials. Continuous support is provided to all teachers so that they continue to reflect on their learnings and practice new strategies.
