We support improving early-grade reading and math, and social and emotional learning skills by addressing the diverse issues that affect student learning for all. Working with ministries of education at central and decentralized levels, we support evidence-based activities for teacher behavior change and professional development. We also introduce mentoring or coaching techniques and approaches to instructional leaders that enable the learning environment in schools. In addition, we develop and distribute age- and culture-appropriate literacy and numeracy methods and materials. Finally, we train teachers and school leaders in curriculum development, school safety, inclusive and gender equitable teaching techniques, child safeguarding, assessment informed instruction, and improving time on task. We also work with communities to increase public support and parental engagement in schools, as well as improving home and school learning environments.
