Literacy Lessons

from the Strong Beginnings/Read Haiti Radio Programs

Radio Distance Learning: Literacy Lessons

The basic structure of the literacy radio program is an introduction song; morning meeting (Sek Matine) and SEL activities; a lesson in Haitian Créole and French; story read-alouds and comprehension questions; and a song or a dance that ends the program and invites students to listen again soon. Explore the series and read a short description of each episode below or listen to a sample from each week's broadcast.
