Have you been yet to Mauritius? If your kids are checking destinations off on a map, they might be begging you to plan a trip here. It’s a beautiful island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar (the 180th largest nation in the world).
The workshops in Owerri began today with approximately 70 teachers, college students, and faculty from the Federal College of Education. Many of them had attended the talk yesterday, so they were prime to get creative, which is exactly what they did.
It was a fun ride from Nsukka to Owerri on Friday. I saw lots of street vendors, roadside markets, and military checkpoints. Obi and I bought roasted corn, peanuts, and bananas for the trip. We were well stocked for the 3 hour journey.
The conference went very well. Titled “Global Literacy Learning Spaces, Strategies, and Opportunities in the Information Age,” the conference brought together educators from across Nigeria to discuss and share ideas about best practices in teaching and learning.
The Nigerian school teachers completed their third and final day of Comic Book Project workshops, and in doing so they completed their three-page comic books. They did a fine job and were all smiles by the end of the day.
The workshops continued today with Nigerian school teachers, who learned the manuscript process of the Comic Book Project. They planned stories for a three-page comic book, with a focus on character and plot development. It was very interesting to see the kinds of stories that the teachers crafted.
