Fellow Partners with U.S. Embassy and Ministry of Education for Workshop in Mauritania

English Language Fellow Arthur Tarr organized a professional development workshop for 26 teachers at the University of Sciences, Technology and Medicine of Nouakchott in Mauritania. Tarr gave two presentations on Promoting Creativity  & Using Games in the Language Classroom. He encouraged participants “not to be afraid of using best practices from around the world.” Participants, who received certificates upon completing the workshop, shared new ideas, approaches and methods for teaching.

Other presenters over the 2-day workshop were James R. Grizzle and Aly Babaly Sy of the US Embassy and Bahena Moustapha & Djigo Amadou, from the Ministry of Education, Nouakchott. Grizzle remarked at the end of the workshop that “by enhancing Mauritania’s English Teaching Profession, young Mauritanians will be better prepared to communicate and interact as global citizens and leaders in the future.”
