image of Caribbean Issues and Developments

The output of a regional teacher education seminar in Trinidad and Tobago in 1995. The objective was to examine developments locally and in other parts of the world, and determine priorities and projects for developing and strengthening teacher education in the Caribbean.



Multi-grade teaching

In many of the small islands of the Caribbean and in remote areas in the larger countries, teachers are required to teach multi-grade classes. These teachers often do not receive any special training and teacher educators at the seminar expressed the need for the inclusion in teacher education programmes of a component that will enable teachers to develop the special skills required for multi-grade teaching.
