Some of the products and solutions that have been developed within the schools we have worked with.
Write for Change
Students often struggle with the writing process, especially when English is an additional language. This programme helps develop sentence formation in books 1 and 2, and then creative writing in books 3 and 4.
Appraisal is part of a teacher's development, but it can either demoralise or encourage, depending on how it is done. This process enable honest evaluation that leads to development not disappointment.
The Lesson Planning Process
Lesson planning is an essential skill that teachers often struggle with. This programme helps teachers plan effective, interactive lessons for students that enable true learning.
Genius Hour encourages self-learning, motivation and presentation. Students choose their own topic to research and then present to others. They learn the skills of research, pitches, organisation, summarising, ICT, presentation and accepting and using feedback.
Intervention for Maximizing students’ Potential through Attainment of goals, Counseling and Training.
A programme to ensure that ALL students in your school discover and reach their potential. From struggling students to high achievers, students will grow academically and personally. Destiny Education will guide and equip your teachers to meet the needs of your students more effectively.
Event Planning by Students
Students love to plan and conduct events, everything from budgeting, to purchasing, to hosting and evaluating.
What other people say...
Joy's teacher training workshops on Phonics and Discipline were highly informative, creative, focused, interactive, practical, and fun.
Joy's expertise and guidance enabled us to think,
apply the skills learnt and improve our methods of teaching in the nurture of young children effectively.
Fab Phonics Level 1 is a must buy book
for all beginners age 3yrs above. Phonics is taught in a very practical way. After a month or 2 going through this book with your child regularly you will see your child starting to read. It works like magic.
Just go for it. You will never regret it.
I am very grateful for such a wonderful teacher training programme. It has helped me get better understanding of teaching methods, discipline and how I can give better input to national and international students.
After the 1st training I have started using the methods in my class and I see very good improvements in the children and class environment.
The sessions with Joy were superb. I got more that I expected. It has changed the way I look at kids and relate to them. It's made me put the child his/her needs / feelings and opinions ahead of achieving targets or just being concerned about 'my job'.
The best part is, doing all of this in a fun way without driving them and myself nuts!
Absolutely enjoyed and learnt so much in every class.
