Creative Reading and Writing Programme by Child.Org
Creative Reading and Writing Programme by CHILD.
The Foundation’s After-School Programme evolved and further expanded through our collaboration with Child Information, Learning and Development Centre to introduce Creative Reading and Writing (CRAW) programme to help students with creative thinking activities whilst improving their English language proficiency. Creativity prepares them with the flexible skills they will need to face an uncertain future. Developing the capacity to be creative can enrich their lives and help them to contribute to a better society. English is an important link language for international communication, information, science and technology.
In 2015, the After-School Programme involves 10 volunteer teachers and 150 school children from five schools based in Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor.
The five schools selected to participate in CRAW are:
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil St. Joseph, Sentul, Wilayah Persekutuan
Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Sentul (1), Sentul, Wilayah Persekutuan
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina Kempas Baru, Johor
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina Kuo Min, Seremban
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil Tampin, Melaka
The programme was targeted at Standard 1 students in 2015 and currently, they are undergoing Year 2 of the enrichment activities. The after-school classes are held twice a week and classes are held for two hours per session. CHILD.Org develops and provides the relevant materials including guidelines for its effective utilization. It also conducts necessary training programmes for volunteer teachers who facilitate the programme in their respective schools. The programme will be closely monitored and evaluated based on a programmed framework with relevant checklists and questionnaires.
Results are measured through students’ performance in the school work including a monthly test, mid-term and year-end exams, after a year.
