About

The multi-year Civic and Tech through English Language (CTEL) Program aims to improve the English language skills of ICT and civics teachers in the regions of Adjara, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Shida Kartli in order to allow them to work with English language teachers to learn and apply integrative, team-teaching methods in their schools. CTEL will provide English language training to ICT and civics teachers in addition to training in integrated learning and teaching techniques to support new teaching teams of English, ICT and civics teachers, along with small extra-curricular projects and activities in selected pilot schools. 

The goal of the CTEL’s Integrated Teaching Methodology workshops is for Civic Education, Technology, and English teachers to learn and apply integrated teaching and learning techniques and approaches so that they can provide students with experiential learning opportunities in democratic practices, and English and technology use. In teams, participating teachers will develop instructional approaches and lessons supporting learning objectives from all three areas, including one plan by the conclusion of each workshop to share with peers.  Following each workshop, teams will deliver the lessons they have developed and receive feedback on their delivery.  Reflection and ongoing improvement will be an important part of the workshop cycle so that participants can continue to build their skills in integrated teaching and learning.

As a result of the program:

- 96 techers of Civics and ICT in 48 public schools of Adjara, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Shida Kartli will improve their English language skills up to the pre-intermediate/ B1 level of language competency;

- 120 teachers of Civic, ICT and English Language in 48 public schools of Adjara, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti and Shida Kartli will learn to plan and conduct lessons using integrated teaching and learning techniques and approaches, so that they are able to merge Englsih Language, Civics and ICT content in one class. 

CTEL program is funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affiars and is implemented in partnership with Georgetown University School for Continuing Studies English Language Center.
