DUCE Teaching Interns Hosted at Milola Secondary School in Milola, Tanzania

DUCE teaching intern leading a class

 

To help address a local shortage of science, mathematics and language teachers, TPP worked with Lindi District to allow DUCE student teachers to fulfill their teaching practice requirement at Milola Secondary School. Five student teachers spent eight weeks at Milola Secondary learning how to translate their college coursework into practice. Two student teachers focused on biology and chemistry, two on physics and mathematics, and one on language. The student teachers worked closely with Milola teachers to learn from their experience teaching in a rural- and resource-poor setting. Together they generated and piloted new strategies to motivate and engage secondary students. Perpetua Urio (DUCE) and Emiliana Mwita (DUCE) conducted supervisory visits and introduced the student teachers to education officials at the district- and ward-level. Initial feedback on the placement of DUCE student teachers at Milola Secondary School has been positive.
