Begin by heading toward the Labone suburb of Accra and to the Morning Star School. This school teaches pupils from kindergarten through ninth grade. We will visit with both students and teachers at this school to learn more about their approaches to education. Students are offered a variety of courses ranging from science and language to health and music. Morning Star language faculty offer English, French and two local languages, Ga and Twi.
Participants will learn about Ghanaian education and see how the Morning Star School fulfills its mission of offering a top quality education in a caring environment. Our group will see how their academic and extracurricular programs support learning, evaluate teaching strategies, and celebrate student achievement. We will develop an appreciation for the ways in which educators around the world work towards meeting the needs of students in order to produce lifelong learners and responsible global citizens.
