ADA Foundation board member and Director of the Brick Church School of New York City, Lydia Spinelli, traveled to Liberia in August 2012 to help set up the ADA classrooms and to train ADA teaching staff before the opening of school on September 10th, 2012. She spent a day training teachers on classroom management, positive discipline, and integrating curriculum through project learning. Another day was spent on teaching pre-literacy skills including the Zoo-phonics curriculum. The Zoo-phonics Multisensory Language Arts Program is a kinesthetic, multi-modal approach to learning all aspects of language arts, including vocabulary development and articulation, based on phonics and phonemic awareness.
A third day was spent teaching mathematics with an emphasis on using Stern Blocks. Through an intuitive, guided system, children develop a concrete understanding of mathematical principles using colorful wooden blocks. Ms. Spinelli found the teachers to be intelligent, responsive, eager to learn, and extremely grateful for the training and materials that were donated to them.
