Another pair of High School teachers continues a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat pilot project for teaching on-line each other’s classes in Belize and Guyana and giving lessons on Regional Integration and the CSME. Tomorrow, Thursday 13 May 2021, Ms. Sefphoney Grinage of Sacred Heart College in Belize will teach the class of Mr. Albert Inshanally of Queen’s College in Guyana.
The lesson begins at 11.40 am EST/ 9.40 am Belize time and focuses on the opportunities, different interests, the CSME and reasons for having CARICOM. Ms. Grinage is a Social Studies teacher with 12 years experience in the profession. Next Thursday, 20 May 2021, Mr. Inshanally will teach Ms. Grinage’s class at the same time doing a second lesson concluding the theme.
This online pilot is a precursor to a proposed activity for teacher exchanges, where they would travel and be attached to classrooms across CARICOM to observe and share experiences in the host Member State. The original plan to be facilitated with assistance from the European Union was placed on hold because of the Covid 19 pandemic.
These activities are part of the CARICOM Secretariat’s on-going initiatives of public education on the CSME.
