Teacheread training facilitators Bryan Manabat and Viola Deleon Guerrero presented on topics ranging from Read Aloud Strategies and Techniques, Online Research Activities, to Storysharing Presentations.
CNMI Motheread/Fatheread extended its gratitude to the “hardworking and gracious staff” of Herman’s Modern Bakery and Jimy Ararao.
CNMI Motheread/Fatheread coordinator Beth Demapan said Teacheread training session are essential in early childhood education.
“It’s not enough just to have excellent teaching materials. Early childhood education faculty need creative and results-oriented strategies for use with their students. The Teacheread training is based on a curriculum that teaches essential literacy skills for use not only in the childcare workplace, but also in future educational pursuits. Additionally, adults learn how to be reading role models for children.”
CNMI Teacheread is a Motheread Program in partnership with the Northern Marianas Council for the Humanities and the Child Care Development Fund under the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs.
