Presentations on MTB-MLE and Transition from Dr. Agatha van Ginkel


Dr. Agatha van Ginkel, an Education and Language Consultant with SIL Africa Area gave two presentations related to MTB-MLE issues at the recent 
All Children Reading, Africa 2012 workshops earlier this year. These workshops, hosted by the Global Partnership for Education and attended by various education experts and leaders, were designed with the purpose of finding innovative ways to improve early grade reading and boost children's literacy in developing countries. 
 

Dr. van Ginkel's presentations discuss both the importance and value of mother tongue instruction as well as provide guidance for teachers on deciding when and how students should be transitioned from their mother tongue to L2.
