English Language Fellow Kitty Johnson teamed with Fellow in Vietnam David Courtney and former Fellow Sarina Monh to give a full day of training to Peace Corps Volunteers in Phnom Penh. The team facilitated active workshops about co-teaching, crafting learning objectives, lesson planning, and activity adaptations. The Volunteers were able to acquire new instructional models and develop their own English-language-teaching skills, but they also benefited by learning to develop their co-teaching relationships with other Peace Corps Volunteers.
 
As one participant to the training event commented,

“I feel much better about how to write objectives of lesson plans with Bloom’s Taxonomy,” while another said, “I learned a lot about being a good partner with a Volunteer.”
 
The Peace Corps and the local U.S. Embassy requested this training. Johnson based it on a needs analysis from the Volunteers and on a well received training that she and a colleague gave last year.
