“Chew, pour, pass, and forget” phenomenon to be eliminated in Ghana’s education.

The Ghana Education Service has partnered with Practical Education Network (PEN) to train teachers in hands-on science in a bid to eliminate the “chew, pour, pass, and forget” phenomenon in Ghana’s education.

The training workshop took place at the Odorgonno Model Basic School in the Ga Central Municipality and brought together ten (10) science teachers each from Ga Central, Ga North and Weija Gbawe Municipalities.

The training forms part of the PEN Teacher Roadmap programme which seeks to fully equip teachers with hands-on pedagogy in the teaching of science and mathematics using locally available materials.

The latest teacher training techniques place a greater emphasis on classroom practices as another way to improve Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics – STEM Education,” said Madam Winifred Cynthia Aku Gbadago, the Municipal Director of Education for Ga Central.

According to her “effective teachers should use relevant everyday events as a basis for science instructions that foster interest and curiosity.

In a way, Kids are by nature curious and need to feed their curiosity and deepen their understanding of scientific concepts.

This approach encourages students to take more active roles in figuring out how natural events work instead of being taught those lessons by an instructor.”

However, she bemoaned the inadequacy of Teaching and Learning Materials for teachers to practicalize science experiments, thus praising PEN for exposing teachers to how they can use low or zero cost locally available materials to teach science practically and effectively.

The participating teachers are expected to replicate the activities they have learnt with their learners in the classroom to begin to shift their science lessons from a lecture-based method to a more practical and meaningful learning experience for their learners.

Yes, at the University, we all learnt improvisation techniques but is seems we are unable to practice it. Comparing the volume of topics to be treated and the time, Teachers are always unable to finish.

This poses threat to students during their Final examination looking at the way the questions are set.

Teachers who take their time to go through lot’s of practical activities with their students are liked by their students but are unable to complete the syllabus.

Teaching in private school gave some of us different experience and training, you must combine the practical work and the lengthy content together and must finish it by being extra fast.

For practical activities they are good and we must all encourage our colleagues to make their students enjoy the science through the practical activities.
