24th August 2011 – Hanan Nasser talks about Training in Jordan
“On Wednesday 24th August 2011, I held a free Jolly Phonics training session at Hill House Kindergarten, Amman, for 25 teachers from Hill House and Ahliah School.
I decided to run the session for free because I am eager to help schools in Jordan to get started with Jolly Phonics as easily as possible. I also took Jolly Phonics resources with me so the participants could have the chance to see them and see how they could use them.
The participants (and myself!) all thoroughly enjoyed the training and the amazing experience of discussing issues surrounding literacy teaching, and sharing new methods with eachother.”
